Bernie Sanders is very much like Karl Marx
April 2019, Both Karl Marx and Bernie Sanders were indifferent students at college and dedicated much of their time towards radical activism. Marx - Karl's dad got him into a number of fine schools. He wasn't a very good student so the family connections came in handy …- Sanders studied at Brooklyn College for a year in 1959–60 before transferring to the University of Chicago and graduating with a bachelor of arts degree in political science n 1964. He has described himself as a mediocre college student because the classroom was "boring and irrelevant," while the community provided his most significant learning.
Virginia braces for enormous gun-rights rally Monday, 1-20-20 ...
1-18-20, Telegram.com -- Headed to Virginia's capital on Monday to take a stand for gun rights - or, in the words of some, to fan the flames of a civil war. "I'll be rolling into town early. Police expect rallygoers to start lining up Sunday night, despite freezing temperatures. Authorities are setting up two medical tents in the area in case of injuries.
The hoopla is focused on promises by Northam to enact sweeping gun control this year, including limiting handgun purchases to one per month, banning assault weapons and silencers, allowing localities to ban guns in public spaces and enacting a “red flag” law so authorities can temporarily seize weapons from someone deemed a threat.
Democrats across Virginia ran on the promise of gun control in last year’s legislative elections, winning majorities in both the House of Delegates and state Senate for the first time in a generation. That gives them the power to act - and has inspired outrage from SECOND AMENDMENT SUPPORTERS.
Prophetic Truth & Consequences
Iran's General Qassem Soleimani Responsible for American Deaths
1-2-20, Breitbart -- The U.S. Dept of Defense claimed Thursday, 1-2-20 evening that Iran’s General Qassem Soleimani, was killed in a U.S. airstrike in Baghdad, Iraq, “he was responsible for the deaths of hundreds of Americans.” It's true.
Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) Al-Quds Force leader Qassem Soleimani directed Iranian military operations abroad, including terror. Reportedly he directed rocket attacks last week that on Dec 27, 2019 killing American civilian contractor in Iraq - 33-year old Nawres Waleed Hamid. Last year, President Donald Trump designated the IRGC as a terrorist organization — an acknowledgment of reality.
Reported in a 2013 profile of Solemani by the anti-Trump New Yorker: John Maguire, a former C.I.A. officer in Iraq said: “Soleimani is the single most powerful operative in the Middle East today and no one’s ever heard of him.” In 2011, the Obama administration sanctioned Soleimani for his role in plotting a foiled terror attack in a Washington, D.C. restaurant with the aim of assassinating the Saudi ambassador to the U.S.
Suleimani took command of Iran's Quds Force fifteen years ago, and in that time he has sought to reshape the Middle East in Iran’s favor, working as a power broker and as a military force: assassinating rivals, arming allies, and, for most of a decade, directing a network of militant groups that killed hundreds of Americans in Iraq.
The U.S. Dept of the Treasury [under Obama] sanctioned Suleimani for his role in supporting the Assad regime of Syria, and for abetting terrorism. And yet he has remained mostly invisible to the outside world, even as he runs agents and directs operations. More here
Now the deluded leftist media and Democrats are wringing their hands that Soleimani was killed. These people are nuts!
There's Only One Group Mourning Soleimani's Death
1-7-20, Nikki Haley, "Soleimani's death was a long time coming. You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members, you’re not hearing China, you’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership and Democrat Presidential candidates.” It's disgusting.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi [D-CA] and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer [D-NY] both accused President Trump of circumventing constitutional guidelines to take out Soleimani, which she described as "a provocative and disproportionate military airstrike."
Pelosi took the opportunity to introduce her War Powers Resolution "to limit the President's military actions regarding Iran." Although there was no complaints when Obama reportedly took out Bin Laden without Congressional approval. Two faced hypocrites!
10-23-19, Fox News -- The Democrat Party has painted itself into a corner promising the American people that they have evidence showing that President Trump has committed multiple impeachable offenses. However, the witnesses they're attempting to use have no first-hand information about the actions that the Democrats cite for the grounds for impeachment. Most of the evidence that these witnesses offer are their own feelings and opinions on hearsay information that they heard through office gossip. The American people must demand an end to the tomfoolery that has consumed those we entrust with our country.
In the 2018 Election When the Democrats Took Control of the US House of Representatives - computerized voting machines may have been hacked
11-22-19, AmerThinker — In essence, widely understood among reasonably sophisticated IT people the security protections in software operated on voting machines throughout the USA had been purposely disabled or ‘un-activated;’ allowing possible penetration of the machines via online access methods. Also mismatches in time-stamped data flows suggest votes were changed. For example, using open-source “Burp Suite” web-crawling software, the investigators looked into a company that supplies software used at polling locations in Texas and 15 other states. They found readily accessible information within this company’s website showing purposeful disclosure of passwords by which anyone could log in to databases that include a wide range of voter and precinct and poll-worker information, including voter names, addresses, social security numbers, driver’s license numbers, etc.
Blatant Voter Fraud In Plain Sight In 2018 Mid-Term Elections
11-27-18, The United States is currently in a constitutional crisis, and has been for years, over having the dirtiest elections in the world. Of course, there are the usual voter fraud tactics being used such as people voting multiple times in the same election, illegal aliens being allowed to vote, electronic ballots programmed to switch votes for a particular candidate and votes being cast by dead people. Now, we are dealing with local precincts who have elections supervisors who destroy, deliberately hide, and claim to miraculously find literally hundreds of thousands of votes after elections are called. Of course, the main counties involved are the usual dens of corruption that have been at it for decades, namely Broward, Palm Beach, and Miami-Dade counties in Florida.
More devastating accessible ‘storyboards’ effectively amount to disclosure of source code for this software (in both IoS and Android form), opening a range of possible nefarious ‘black hat’ hacking and manipulation that can enable, in bottom line terms, control over any and every voting results in America. (..snip)
A vigorous investigation, exposure and correction would be a monumental republic restoring process. AG William Barr needs to get on this! If the fraud is as widespread and systemic as many believe - there isn’t going to be a technical fix in time for the 2020 elections. There may in fact be only one solution:
An American grassroots effort on a scale never before seen to demand that the 2020 election be by paper ballot, counted manually, in all 50 states.
Pelosi forced to send articles of impeachment to Senate or it'll be dismissed
1-10-20, RT.com -- After Republican leadership in the Senate rejected Pelosi's requested conditions and moved to dismiss the charges unless impeach articles sent, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi caved saying they will be transmitted next week. Republicans pointed to the delays as proof the Democrats were not serious and that the entire process was a partisan attempt to overturn the 2016 election. They also pointed to Pelosi holding a vote to approve the trade deal with Mexico and Canada a day after the hoax of impeachment, and inviting Trump to deliver the annual State of the Union address on February 4, 2020 as if nothing had happened.
Why Pelosi stalled for three weeks to send President Trump impeachment articles to the Senate
Dec 19, 2019 · The drama over when Pelosi will send Trump’s impeachment articles to the Senate ... she's stalling because she knows there is no 'there' there! It's a phony political hoax ... so she stalled hoping to pull some magic trick out of the hat preventing his acquittal.
Nancy Pelosi doesn't have 'shared respect for life' as Mike Lee [R-UT] who is a Mormon ... considering she's pro abortion and the govt killing Americans and hiding it.
Impeach Barack Obama! U.S. citizens killed in Obama drone strike
3-19-14, On May 22, 2013, the Obama administration "formally acknowledged for the first time that it had killed four American citizens in drone strikes outside the battlefields of Afghanistan and Iraq"...As LaRouche Democrat and U.S. Senate candidate Ms Kesha Rogers of Texas calls for the impeachment of Democrat President Barack Obama, she lists among her reasons the "assassination" of U.S. citizens.
The Obama White House claims that only American Anwar al-Awlaki was specifically targeted. However, there is no way to verify that, since the deliberations are secret.
Anwar al-Awlaki and Khan were killed in Yemen on Sept. 30, 2011. A March 9, 2013, Times news story about the strike said al-Awlaki, a Muslim cleric born in New Mexico, incited and plotted terrorist incidents involving U.S. targets, including lending support via email to Muslim killer Nidal Hasan in 2009 before he killed 13 and wounded more than 30 people at Fort Hood in Texas. Khan, who the story said came from North Carolina, edited the online Islamic al-Qaeda propaganda magazine Inspire that promotes killing and arson wildfires. More here
The Head Wrapped Woman from Minnesota who is a freshman congresswoman in the USA is vowing to 'stop Trump' claiming he wants a distraction and war with Iran ... how is she not an enemy of the USA?
11-26-19, WashingtonExam -- Muslim woman Ilhan Omar, the Minnesota freshman congresswoman said she is the victim of Saudi propaganda after she was accused of being a "Qatari asset" and conduit to Iran during a Florida court case.
NOW she is attacking President Trump ...
1-9-20, Rep. Ilhan Omar, D-Minn. called on members of Congress to join her in an effort supporting Iran and stopping President Trump following the removal of the notorious monster Iranian Gen. Qassim Soleimani. Ms Omar said: “So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction? Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will.” See 2 minute video here More here
Full Transcript President Trump's Remarks
"Iran appears to be standing down...."
Regarding Iran Military Action and
US Disposal of Iran's General Soleimani
United States White House
Washington DC, USA
President Donald J. Trump:
"As long as I am President of the United States, Iran will never be allowed to have a nuclear weapon.
Good morning. I’m pleased to inform you the American people should be extremely grateful and happy that no Americans were harmed in last night’s attack by the Iranian regime. We suffered no casualties, all of our soldiers are safe, and only minimal damage was sustained at our military bases.
Our great American forces are prepared for anything. Iran appears to be standing down, which is a good thing for all parties concerned and a very good thing for the world.
No American or Iraqi lives were lost because of the precautions taken, the dispersal of forces, and an early warning system that worked very well. I salute the incredible skill and courage of America’s men and women in uniform.
For far too long — all the way back to 1979, to be exact — nations have tolerated Iran’s destructive and destabilizing behavior in the Middle East and beyond. Those days are over. Iran has been the leading sponsor of terrorism, and their pursuit of nuclear weapons threatens the civilized world. We will never let that happen.
Last week, we took decisive action to stop a ruthless terrorist from threatening American lives. At my direction, the United States military eliminated the world’s top terrorist, Qasem Soleimani. As the head of the Quds Force, Soleimani was personally responsible for some of the absolutely worst atrocities.
He trained terrorist armies, including Hezbollah, launching terrorist strikes against civilian targets. He fueled bloody civil wars all across the region. He viciously wounded and murdered thousands of U.S. troops, including the planting of roadside bombs that maim and dismember their victims.
Soleimani directed the recent attacks on U.S. personnel in Iraq that badly wounded four service members and killed one American, and he orchestrated the violent assault on the U.S. embassy in Baghdad. In recent days, he was planning new attacks on American targets, but we stopped him.
Soleimani’s hands were drenched in both American and Iranian blood. He should have been terminated long ago. By removing Soleimani, we have sent a powerful message to terrorists: If you value your own life, you will not threaten the lives of our people.
As we continue to evaluate options in response to Iranian aggression, the United States will immediately impose additional punishing economic sanctions on the Iranian regime. These powerful sanctions will remain until Iran changes its behavior.
In recent months alone, Iran has seized ships in international waters, fired an unprovoked strike on Saudi Arabia, and shot down two U.S. drones.
Iran’s hostilities substantially increased after the foolish Iran nuclear deal was signed in 2013, and they were given $150 billion, not to mention $1.8 billion in cash. Instead of saying “thank you” to the United States, they chanted “death to America.” In fact, they chanted “death to America” the day the agreement was signed.
Then, Iran went on a terror spree, funded by the money from the deal, and created hell in Yemen, Syria, Lebanon, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The missiles fired last night at us and our allies were paid for with the funds made available by the last administration. The regime also greatly tightened the reins on their own country, even recently killing 1,500 people at the many protests that are taking place all throughout Iran.
The very defective JCPOA expires shortly anyway, and gives Iran a clear and quick path to nuclear breakout. Iran must abandon its nuclear ambitions and end its support for terrorism. The time has come for the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Russia, and China to recognize this reality.
They must now break away from the remnants of the Iran deal -– or JCPOA –- and we must all work together toward making a deal with Iran that makes the world a safer and more peaceful place. We must also make a deal that allows Iran to thrive and prosper, and take advantage of its enormous untapped potential. Iran can be a great country.
Peace and stability cannot prevail in the Middle East as long as Iran continues to foment violence, unrest, hatred, and war. The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: Your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer. It will not be allowed to go forward.
Today, I am going to ask NATO to become much more involved in the Middle East process. Over the last three years, under my leadership, our economy is stronger than ever before and America has achieved energy independence. These historic accompliments [accomplishments] changed our strategic priorities. These are accomplishments that nobody thought were possible. And options in the Middle East became available. We are now the number-one producer of oil and natural gas anywhere in the world. We are independent, and we do not need Middle East oil.
The fact that we have this great military and equipment, however, does not mean we have to use it. We do not want to use it. American strength, both military and economic, is the best deterrent.
Three months ago, after destroying 100 percent of ISIS and its territorial caliphate, we killed the savage leader of ISIS, al-Baghdadi, who was responsible for so much death, including the mass beheadings of Christians, Muslims, and all who stood in his way. He was a monster. Al-Baghdadi was trying again to rebuild the ISIS caliphate, and failed.
Tens of thousands of ISIS fighters have been killed or captured during my administration. ISIS is a natural enemy of Iran. The destruction of ISIS is good for Iran, and we should work together on this and other shared priorities.
Finally, to the people and leaders of Iran: We want you to have a future and a great future — one that you deserve, one of prosperity at home, and harmony with the nations of the world. The United States is ready to embrace peace with all who seek it.
I want to thank you, and God bless America.
Thank you very much."

1-8-20, Fox News -- Reportedly Iran fired dozens of missiles aimed at bases in Iraq in retaliation for the American strike that killed Iranian general Qasem Soleimani last week. Iran may have chosen to just send a face saving message rather than take significant enough action to provoke a substantial US military response. Many believe the current action is possibly a signal that the Iranian administration's current desire is to calm tensions. Iranian missiles landed close to the US consulate in Erbil, but didn’t target the consulate itself, though the belief is that they could have...
Obama's Legacy Is Dead and Trump Killed It
5-20-18, RedState -- Obama was a race-baiter ... he spent a decade or more in a church led by a virulent racist and bigot. Throughout his tenure in office, he sought to stoke racial tensions for political goals. Whether it was the “beer summit” or Trayvon Martin or Michael Brown or #BlackLivesMatter, Obama consistently pitted races against each other. [..] World events certainly are not peaceful, but are better than they were in 2016.
Pres Trump has changed the world:
Obama's Benghazi in Baghdad
In both Benghazi and Baghdad, Islamist terror militias who we thought were our allies turned on the United States. In both cases, there was nothing surprising or unexpected about this inevitable development to anyone except foreign policy experts and the media. Obama had helped birth the Islamic State by backing Iran's takeover of Iraq. Forced to fight ISIS, he doubled down on the same strategy. And that completed the takeover.
And, in both Benghazi and Baghdad, the Obama administration's policy of cultivating Islamic terrorists had come home to roost. The current Islamists who attacked the US embassy in Baghdad were not Trump's allies, but Obama's allies. When in 2011 the head of Badr Brigade of Iraq visited the White House … it was Obama’s not Trump’s. The close IRGC ally was welcomed by Obama, and played a role in the current embassy attack. Trump listed the IRGC, Iran's global terror hub as a terror group - Obama resisted it dating back to his time in the Senate [2005-08].
Once in the White House, Obama's policies so empowered and enabled the IRGC that in one of the most infamous incidents in American history, members of the Islamic terror group captured and humiliated American sailors. There is little doubt that the IRGC was the hidden hand behind the embassy attack in Baghdad through its PMF proxies.
The rise of ISIS and the attack on our embassy in Baghdad had their roots in Obama's backing for Iraq's Shiite dominated government. [..] Obama wanted to pull out of Iraq as soon as possible. His plan for a quick pullout was to allow Iran a free hand in Baghdad. The Sunni Islam tribal leaders who had made the 'awakening' against Al Qaeda possible were ignored by Obama when they came to D.C. seeking support against Iran.
While the media went on touting Obama's incredible successes in Iraq, the country split into two terror camps. While the Popular Mobilization Forces rolled up Shiite areas, Al Qaeda in Iraq reinvented itself as ISIS.
Unlike President Trump, Obama chose not to hit ISIS hard. Instead, after Iraq's military collapsed, his administration's anti-ISIS strategy relied heavily on supporting the Shiite PMF militias which included embedded Iranian forces.
Iran's takeover of Iraq, like its involvement in Yemen's civil war, in Lebanon, Syria and Gaza [in Israel] were funded by the wages of Obama's nuclear sellout. The billions that Obama directly and indirectly handed to the terrorists of Tehran were used to fund soft and hard influence across the region.
The Iran deal didn't just mean that the terror regime was able to continue building up its nuclear program, but that it could increase its financial commitments to the Islamic terror group Hamas [in Gaza], help build up Hezbollah in Lebanon, the Houthis in Yemen and the PMFs in Iraq. [..]
Under Obama, billions in foreign currency were illegally flown into Iran on unmarked cargo planes, then Pres Trump cut off the cash.
The cash crunch not only weakened Iran's regime, where fresh protests arose, but its terror networks, including in Iraq, began facing their own cash shortages. And so Iran's rulers, their IRGC hidden hand, and their Islamist PMF proxies decided to send America and the protesters a message. [..]
Who helped build up the Islamic terrorist infrastructure? The Obama administration did. Beyond the cash shipments to Iran and the sanctions relief, the PMFs benefited from US foreign aid directed through Iraq's Interior Ministry. Even as Iraq's Interior Ministry was headed by a Badr leader trained by Iranian forces who had been arrested for smuggling explosives used to attack American soldiers, US foreign aid kept flowing through an Iraqi ministry run by terrorists.
The Obama administration may be history, but the damage it did still reverberates through the region as the Islamist forces it unleashed continues to tear apart nations and threatens American lives.

In Nov 1979 Jimmy Carter was the Dem US President; a group of Iranians stormed the U.S. Embassy in Tehran holding FIFTY-TWO Americans hostage for 444-days. Carter ordered a military operation involving an elite rescue team that failed when their helicopter crashed into a transport plane, killing eight American servicemen. Amid constant media coverage, Carter’s weakness & failure to resolve the hostage crisis was one of many reasons that Republican Ronald Reagan became the US President causing Carter not to serve a second term. Soon after Reagan's election in Nov 1980, the Iranians agreed to release the Americans just minutes after Reagan delivered his inaugural address on January 20, 1981. Strength works!
Crazy Talk of Four Leading Democrats:
Nancy Pelosi quote 'just crumbs'
Joe Biden's top stupid comments:
Liz Warren, Abortion & Tonsils
Maxine Waters: '92 L.A. Rodney King Rebellion Was A 'Defining Moment ...
4-27-17, HuffPost -- Dem-CA Rep. Maxine Waters remembers the 1992 Los Angeles "rebellion" [aka riots] aftermath of when Rodney King was brutally beaten by LAPD officers who were not charged for their brutality. Black people rioted ... 50 people were killed, 2000 injured, 9500 arrested & $1 billion in property damage was the result. On 4-29-07 the LATimes reported Maxine's comments: “If you call it a riot, it sounds like it was just a bunch of crazy people who went out and did bad things for no reason. I maintain it was a rebellion."
Bill Clinton Once Struck a Nuclear Deal With North Korea
In 1985, despite his apparent commitment to developing nuclear weapons, North Korean leader Kim Il Sung did ratify the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. Then on Oct 18, 1994 US President Bill Clinton said in a speech announcing a landmark nuclear agreement between the United States and North Korea he said: “This agreement is good for the United States, good for our allies, and good for the safety of the entire world.” It was called the "Agreed Framework", it was designed to put the brakes on North Korea’s nuclear program promising to put an end to years of increasing nuclear tension, including halting a near war. It didn't. More here from TruthorFiction
Liberal Media Trashed Pres Trump 90% of the Time - But it didn't matter
1-15-19, Newsbusters -- Since January 20, 2017, the Media Research Center [MRC] has analyzed every moment of coverage of President Trump on the ABC, CBS and NBC evening newscasts, seen by approximately 23 million people each night finding that 90% of news coverage on the president had negative tones, with only 10% of coverage having a positive tone. At the midpoint of Pres Trump’s first term, the establishment media’s obvious hostility shows no signs of relenting, but polls show this negative coverage has had no discernible impact on the public’s attitudes toward the President.
Six Corporations Control 90% Of The Media In America
6-6-15 The reason we never find anything new on TV is that 70% of what is on cable is owned by the ‘Big 6.’ Comcast now owns 51% of NBC, while GE owns 49%, further controlling the market. The Bilderberg Group [BG] has an impact on by letting these major corporations network with each other. [BG is a powerful global company/group that meets discussing the current world happenings.] Time Warner doesn’t own AOL, so Huffington Post isn’t affiliated with them. Clearly the ‘Big 6’ is is a liberal anti conservative America monopoly and of course ... anti President Trump. More here
Obama paid Iran $400 million ransom for American hostages
8-2-16, WashingtonTimes -- In January 2016 Obama secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran it the same time the Iranians were finally releasing four jailed Americans, he tried to argue it wasn't ransom. [chuckle] The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. and European officials and congressional sources, reported that Obama procured the money from central banks in Switzerland and the Netherlands. The cash was stacked on wooden pallets and flown to Tehran in an unmarked cargo plane. The cash was paid in foreign currency because any transaction with Iran in U.S. dollars is illegal under U.S. law.
Obama White House Caught Secretly Airlifting $1.7 Billion US
8-3-16, ZeroHedge -- What candidate Donald Trump proclaimed as the worst deal ever made, may just have become "worst-er." The truth behind the US-Iran nuclear deal, was as WSJ reports that John Kerry and the Obama ordered $1.7 bn of cash to be airlifted the rogue Islamic terror nation of Iran. Obama claimed the events were separate [$400 mill and $1.3 bill], but acknowledged the cash was used as leverage [aka quid pro quo] for the release of American hostages [aka ransom!]. The remaining $1.3 billion represented interest on Iranian cash the U.S. held since the 1970s. More here from LA Times
4-6-15, wnd.COM -- When President Obama announced a "framework" nuclear agreement with Iran – which Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warned threatens the very existence of Israel – few noticed the significance of the date. On the Jewish calendar in 2015; April 1 coincided with Nisan 13, the date in history when a Persian [modern day Iran] king signed an agreement calling for the destruction of the Jews. "King Obama has issued his decree putting the Jewish nation at risk of annihilation on the very same day that King Ahasuerus' scribes came together and issued their statement to the rulers of every people of every province according to the writing thereof, and to every people after their language and sent letters by posts into all the king's provinces, to destroy, to kill, and to cause to perish, all Jews, both young and old, little children and women, in one day." [..] The outcome may already be written down! The Bible records the Jew hater of the Bible's book of Esther, Haman was hanged on the very scaffold he had prepared for Mordecai, a Jew, and the king dispatched a letter exposing Haman's plot, instructing Jews to defend themselves.
Iran: Bush and Obama were afraid to confront the Islamic terror nation of Iran and tried diplomacy and sanctions ... EVEN BRIBERY. They didn't work - President Trump took severe action killing their head General. Of course the Trump haters are piling on with their hysterical criticisms.
1-2-20, Erick Erickson -- I won’t play Iran expert here. I grew up in Dubai in the 1980s. I remember once my school had to be evacuated for days on the threat of a bomb. I remember for a long time having to go through police checkpoints to get into school. Our lunch boxes would be open and book bags searched for bombs.
It was all thanks to the Iranians. At the height of the Gulf War, my father on an oil platform had to be evacuated as the Iranians decided to blow it up. Thankfully, they didn’t hit his, but others. One day, from school a few blocks from the Persian Gulf, we could see smoke on the horizon as platforms burned. We could hear the explosions.
Iran has been messing with us for a long time and we have treated them like gnats to be swatted. Eventually, a gnat might bite; it can become more than a nuisance.
Over the past few years, the Iranians have become more aggressive. The Obama Administration’s Iran Deal did not stop Iranians from exercising terroristic intent across the Middle East; but it did give them money to pay for their attacks.
Since 1998, Iran's general Qassem Suleimani has been Iran’s puppet master, orchestrating terrorist brigades around the world. He's now dead thanks to American resolve. If you want a sense of the damage inflicted, survey the headlines of drone attacks, terrorist attacks, bombings and more destruction across the Middle East for the past twenty years.
Suleimani and Iran have been fighting us and our allies and we have restrained ourselves. Suleimani and Iran could be emboldened knowing we would never strike at them directly.
Now we have and he is dead and Iran will retaliate.
Yes, but that ignores that Iran has been targeting Americans and American allies for some time. Just last week, an American lost his life during an Iranian backed attack. Hundreds of other Americans have died on Gen Suleimani’s orders.
President Trump finally acted decisively against a butcher of Americans.
All these Trump haters and weak kneed pacifists keep wanting the United States to take the punches without punching back. These Democrats and partisans are like the school that punishes the kid who finally decked the bully. They hide behind the myth that Obama solved the situation and turn a blind eye to the reality that he fed the Iranian war machine.
President Trump must prepare for an Iranian response. It will come. It will be violent. It will be deadly. It will come. And we should hit back even harder.
It is time to stop coddling the Iranian regime.

Presidents Bush and Obama feared retaliation
from Iran that only caused the terror to continue
Since the Iranian Revolution in 1979, the government of Iran has been training, financing and providing weapons and safe havens for non-state Islamic militant bad "actors" such as Islamic terror groups: Hezbollah in Lebanon, Hamas in Gaza, in Israel Palestinian groups (Islamic Jihad (PIJ) and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine-General Command (PFLP-GC). The United States State Dept has accused Iranian-backed Iraqi Shia militias of terrorism against US troops and Iran of cyberterrorism, primarily through its Quds Force led by Gen Soleimani.
Obama Refused To Respond To Iran’s Acts
2010, DailyWire -- Obama tried sanctions and diplomacy repeating the failed policies of the past; his foreign policy strategy was inept. Ignoring the fact that an Iranian govt sanctioned bombing was almost conducted down the street from the White; and instead he gave them billions on pallets of cash and a nuclear deal that had very little upside for anyone but the Iranians.
GW Bush Softly Dealt With Iran's Terror with Sanctions & Diplomacy
2006, Senior USA officials blamed regime policies for the isolation and hardships suffered by the Iranian people. President Bush spoke directly to the Iranian people on the Iranian new year, expressing respect for Iranian history, culture and traditions and explicitly expressing American support for their struggles. [BooHoo]
1-3-20, DailyNews -- US officials confirm that the politically powerful Iranian general -the head of Iran’s elite Quds Force - Qassem Soleimani  died at Baghdad’s international airport Thursday, Jan 2, 2020 also Abu Mahdi al Muhandis, head of the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces was killed. The general was referred to as Tehran’s “shadow commander” during his time as the head of the Quds Force, a branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps responsible for conducting special operations outside Iranian territory. The drone strike was directly ordered by President Trump; the Pentagon said: “The strike was aimed at deterring future Iranian attack plans." [Obama and Bush tried sanctions and diplomacy even bribery with the rogue Islamic terror nation to no avail - many believe force is the only thing they understand.]Reportedly the recent attacks on the US Iraq Embassy was ordered by the Iran General Soleimani; he was hit near the Iraq airport’s cargo area as he disembarked his plane to be greeted by Abu Mahdi al-Muhandis. General Suleimani was the architect of nearly every significant terror operation by Iranian intelligence and military forces over the past two decades and his death was a staggering blow for Iran at a time of sweeping geopolitical conflict.

UPDATE, 1-1-20: Iran-backed militiamen withdraw from TWO DAY PROTEST AND ATTEMPTED siege of US Embassy in Baghdad Iraq as Pres Trump sends hundreds of troops. More here
Iraq: US Embassy Under Attack
On Sunday, 12/30/19 approximately 25 Islamic terror group Hezbollah fighters died when the US bombed bases associated with the Kataib Hezbollah militia in western Iraq and eastern Syria. The current protests outside the US Embassy in Iraq apparently are in response to the US action against Hezbollah and orchestrated by Islamic 'Shiite' [Iranian] Protesters who managed to break through the main gate of the Baghdad embassy.
12-31-19, Baghdad Iraq gunfire reported after Iraqi Shiite [Irainian] militia supporters storm compound and started fires. US President Donald Trump sending additional military support to the U.S. embassy. Shiite militiamen and their supporters broke into the US embassy 100 acre compound smashing a main door and setting fire to a reception area. American guards fired tear gas at protesters while columns of smoke rose over the embassy grounds. A reporter at the scene saw flames rising from inside the compound and at least three U.S. soldiers on the roof of the main embassy building.
Pres Trump blamed Iran for the embassy breach and called on Iraq to protect the diplomatic mission. He said in a tweet: “Iran killed an American contractor, wounding many. We strongly responded, and always will. Now Iran is orchestrating an attack on the U.S. Embassy in Iraq. They will be held fully responsible. In addition, we expect Iraq to use its forces to protect the Embassy, and so notified!”
A U.S. defense official told Fox News 100 Marines are being sent to the embassy to bolster security. A U.S. Apache helicopter gunship also flew over the embassy and dropped flares in a “show of force,” attempting to disperse the crowd. A US spokesperson said: “As the president said, Iran is orchestrating this attack, and they will be held fully responsible. It will be the president’s choice how and when we respond to their escalation.”
In 2003 under Republican President George W. Bush the United States invaded Iraq and overthrew the government of Saddam Hussein. The U.S. then established diplomatic relations with the new Iraqi government. The old U.S. embassy was deemed unsafe for American diplomats and remained deserted so a temporary embassy was established in the Republican Palace. Then on 100 acres in 2005 construction began on the decadent Baghdad US 'palace.' The completion target date was September 2007. Pres Bush sent Congress an FY2005 emergency funding request for the embassy in Iraq. In 2013 Business Insider reported that the cost of the embassy had surpassed $750 million. The embassy formally opened behind schedule in January 2009 with a staff of over 16,000 people. In 2012 Obama requested more than $100 million for a "massive" upgrade to the compound. As of 2006, construction was being led by First Kuwaiti Trading & Contracting.  [Didn't even give the job to American contractors??] The embassy features extensive housing and infrastructure facilities in addition to diplomatic buildings as follows. Source Wikipedia
- Six apartment buildings for employees
- Water and waste treatment facilities
- A power station
- Two "major diplomatic office buildings"
- Recreation, including a gym, cinema, several tennis courts and an Olympic-size interior swimming pool as well as one outside
SICK! As Fighters Stormed Baghdad Embassy, Democrats Blamed Trump for Iran Militia Attack, Some Cheered for Benghazi Replay
12-31-19, A leading Never-Trumper attacked President Trump even as Iranian backed militias were storming the U.S. embassy in Baghdad, with several blaming Trump–not Iran–for the attack while others cheered for a Benghazi replay. It was so bad that a Hillary Clinton State Department/Obama NSC alum called on one Democrat group to delete a Benghazi tweet about the Baghdad attack.
On Sunday, 12/30/19 approximately 25 Islamic terror group Hezbollah fighters died when the US bombed bases associated with the Kataib Hezbollah militia in western Iraq and eastern Syria. The current protests outside the US Embassy in Iraq apparently are in response to the US action against Hezbollah and orchestrated by Islamic 'Shiite' [Iranian] Protesters who managed to break through the main gate of the embassy.

Chris Stevens' Death & Benghazi -- Obama Administration ...https://www.nationalreview.com/2016/10/chris-stevens-death-benghazi-obama...When Chris Stevens died, I wanted to know why, when, how. I did not try to assess blame; I needed the answers to process my grief. Many people who have lost loved ones will understand this.
Unlike the 9/11/12 Benghazi horror when no US action was taken against Islamic terrorists as it was reportedly an unprovoked killing - so far in the current Iraq debacle - no US deaths have been reported in Baghdad, Iraq. More here from BBC
Democrats remove ‘so help me God’ from House
6-4-19, (LifeSiteNews) – Democrats controlling the U.S. House of Representatives have removed “so help me God” from the oath witnesses take before testifying. The things that Dems do are anti-God; maybe they don’t want to feel judged while they do them like encouraging abortion/homosexuality and lying about Pres Trump.
Democrats To Remove God, Gender-Specific Language

The FBI's warrant system for spying on Americans is a mess
12-10-19, NBCNews -- Many have long said the process for getting secret warrants to spy on Americans is flawed. Currently revealed that the FBI process in acquiring warrant to spy on candidate Trump's campaign Carter Page was so badly managed and rife with errors that the bureau's director Wray, immediately issued a statement saying he was already implementing reforms.

Attorney General William Barr accused the FBI of "gross abuses" and "intrusive techniques" he also suggested the FBI may have investigated the Trump campaign in "bad faith."
Eric Holder Unloads on AG William Barr
12-12-19, Salon.com -- Obama's Attorney General Eric Holder said that current Attorney General Bill Barr’s “deeply inappropriate” actions and rhetoric demonstrate that he is “unfit to lead the Justice Department.” Holder warned that Barr’s actions as attorney general set a dangerous precedent. Holder said: “Virtually since the moment he took office, though, Barr’s words and actions have been fundamentally inconsistent with his duty to the Constitution. Which is why I now fear that his conduct — running political interference for an increasingly lawless president — will wreak lasting damage. The American people deserve an attorney general who serves their interests, leads the Justice Department with integrity and can be entrusted to pursue the facts and the law, even — and especially — when they are politically inconvenient and inconsistent with the personal interests of the president who appointed him. William Barr has proved he is incapable of serving as such an attorney general. He is unfit to lead the Justice Department.”

Obama's Apologies: How he humiliated the USA
6-2-09, Heritage -- As Obama embarks  on his second major overseas tour to Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Germany and France; the world does not need yet another apology. On several occasions Obama has sought to apologize for the actions of the USA when addressing a foreign audience. Obama's speech, Rhenus Sports Arena, Strasbourg, France, April 3, 2009: "So we must be honest with ourselves. In recent years we've allowed our Alliance to drift. I know that there have been honest disagreements over policy, but we also know that there's something more that has crept into our relationship. In America, there's a failure to appreciate Europe's leading role in the world."
President Trump Is Making America Respected & Great Again
8-7-17, Investors.com -- Allies of the USA are realizing that Uncle Sam has limits to his generosity. Despite some political bluster, Pres Trump has kept our commitment to NATO while raising pressure for all nations to honor their obligations and pay their fair share. Our relationship with key nations is improving. Using diplomacy, Pres Trump has developed good relationships with leaders around the world in an effort to strengthen ties and avoid conflict.
The job market is improving, unemployment fell from 4.8% in October to 4.4% in June. This year, the civilian labor force participation rate hit 160 million Americans, a record never once reached in eight years under Obama.
10-15-19, RenewAmerica.com -- The leftists in the Democrat Party want a Godless society in the United States, just like their leftist counterparts have done in Europe. Anyone who remembers the political scene of the mid-20th Century may have trouble reconciling that Franklin Delano Roosevelt and John Fitzgerald Kennedy belong to the same political party as Barack Obama and Nancy Pelosi. The Democrat Party is not the party of anyone's parents who - as conservative Roman Catholic Democrats - cheered when FDR spoke of World War II as the war to preserve "Christian Civilization," or when at JFK's inauguration he spoke "that the rights of man coming not from the generosity of the state but from the hand of God." JFK's Inaugural Address. given almost 60 years ago, was inspirational. He addressed what it is to be an American with the main themes of freedom, peace, God's role in our lives and service to others or personal accountability. More here
5-22-17, Carol Swain, PragerUniv -- Did you know that the Democrat Party defended slavery, started the Civil War, founded the KKK & fought against every major civil rights act in U.S. history? In 1854 the Republican Party was founded as an anti-slavery political party. Former Confederate General Nathan Bedford Forrest [Dem] was the KKK’s first grand wizard; in 1869, he unsuccessfully tried to disband it after he grew critical of the Klan’s excessive violence but failed. In Tennessee under a platform of philosophized white racial superiority, the KKK employed violence as a means of pushing back Reconstruction and its enfranchisement of African Americans. In a few Southern states, Republicans organized militia units to break up the Klan. More here from History.com
There’s a Big Difference in the Happiness of the Governed When Righteous & God Fearing People Are in Authority
“Wisdom and understanding is more precious than rubies: and all the things thou canst desire are not to be compared unto her. Godless men should not rule or lay snares for the people. When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice: but when the wicked beareth rule, the people mourn.”
12-23-19, In any nation the people cannot rejoice except the righteous are in authority. Leaders' duty is to promote the happiness of the people. This is especially true of those who are exalted into high rank, dignified with honors and vested with authority. Those who are of an exalted station, without attending to the duties for which he/she was ‘hired,’ to a degree, are criminal both in the eyes of God and man.
The deficiencies in civil life can be supplied only by faith in almighty God aka “religion.” The first duty of a governor/leader is therefore to diligently observe and have reverence for God and His laws. The first duty of subjects/citizens of a nation is obedience to its laws. No person thinks laws unnecessary – consider traffic laws – it would be utter mayhem if there were no four way stops!
Laws are easily obeyed by those who add to human sanctions … the obligations of conscience, morality and obedience to almighty God. [Romans 13:1-2, 3-7]
Short list of advantages citizens enjoy under a righteous government:
- The people are encouraged; their spirit is enlivened making them eager to produce and obey righteous laws that protect the innocent.
- Righteousness exalts a nation and spreads its respect to all nations.
- Receive almighty God’s blessings. [Psalm 1:1-3, 3:8, 5:12, 32:10]
There are diverse opinions about the righteousness and morality of the current US President Donald Trump. Who can deny that the nation has prospered and been blessed since he entered the White House? Clearly one of almighty God’s admonitions is that those who bless Israel will be blessed; and no other US president has shown such true friendship to the Jewish state than Donald John Trump. [Genesis 12:3] President Trump has also worked to limit and reduce the murder of innocent babies in their mother's womb. We must pray for President Trump's increased faith and obedience to almighty God.
Serve the LORD with fear and celebrate His rule
with trembling. Psalm 2:10-11; Proverbs 11:14
The Ins and Outs of Delaying a Senate Impeachment Trial
What the Dems Are Up To - What Does the US Constitution Say?
Apparently the House Democrats got their idea to delay sending their articles of impeachment over to the Senate from Harvard Law School’s Professor Laurence H. Tribe.  who has been a strong advocate for impeaching President Trump. [..] He opined in a Wash-Post op-ed that “the House, whose historical role is to prosecute articles of impeachment in the Senate after exercising its ‘sole’ power to impeach, is under no affirmative constitutional obligation to do so instantly.” [..] Relying on Article I, Section 5 of the Constitution that says each legislative chamber sets its own rules, Professor Tribe also tweeted that “It’s up to the House when and how to prosecute its case in the Senate.” However, Article I, Section 3 provides that “The Senate shall have the sole Power to try all Impeachments.” [..]
Speaker Pelosi and her cohorts are trying to exploit these Senate rules by delaying the rules’ trigger for Senate trial action. However, there's no constitutional requirement that the Senate must wait to act until the House formally names its prosecution managers and presents its articles of impeachment to the Senate. The Senate alone has the power to set and to change its own rules.

12-19-19, Hotair -- Lawyers are looking at various options for proceeding if House doesn't send articles of impeachment to the Senate. Pres Trump doesn't want it to be left hanging; he wants an acquittal - Dems do not want acquittal. Now that Pelosi refuses to send the articles to the Senate; the stalemate question has an impeachment even happened? The argument is that a trial in the Senate must be held on whether to remove the President for it to be an impeachment. Also, if Pres Trump has officially been impeached, the U.S. Senate should already have jurisdiction. Backers of the theory argue that the clause of the U.S. Constitution gives the Senate “the sole power to try all impeachments” indicating that the impeachment isn’t formalized until the House delivers the articles to the Senate. Many Dems are nervous that Senate Majority Leader McConnell may decide not to dispose of the matter at all and just leave it dangling over the House’s head throughout 2020 frozen in place.

Obama paid Iran $400 million ransom for American hostages
8-7-16, WashTimes --In January 2016 Obama secretly airlifted $400 million in cash to Iran at the same time Tehran was releasing four Americans hostages. Top congressional Republican is calling “ransom.” The Wall Street Journal, citing U.S. and European officials and congressional sources, reported that the administration procured the money from central banks in Switzerland and the Netherlands.
The money was stacked on wooden pallets and flown to Tehran in an unmarked cargo plane. The WSJ reported that the money represented the first installment of a $1.7 billion settlement that the Obama reached with Iran to resolve a decades-old failed arms deal signed before the Iranian revolution in 1979.
