The Left’s hatred of President Trump is so deep and pervasive they are outraged that he had a terrorist taken out. We all, Democrats and Republicans, celebrated when our Seals surgically removed Ben Laden under Obama. But for the Left, Trump removing both Baghdadi and Soleimani is unacceptable. Never mind Angela Merkel, who agrees with nothing Trump does, Jeh Johnson (Obama’s head of the DHS), General Petraeus, Nikki Haley and many others agree the world is a safer place without these evil men in it.
In unison Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer, the Democrats and media are saying Trump had no authority to attack Soleimani without Congressional approval. So, let’s take an impartial, rational look at that. Did Obama ask for Congressional approval to take out Ben Laden? No. Did Obama ask for Congressional approval to bomb Libya? Run guns to Syria? No, and Democrats had no problem with it. Did Clinton have Congressional approval for bombing Kosovo? Again, no.
Democrats are running around with their hair on fire because Trump droned Soleimani. The strike was so surgical only the bad guys were killed. They fail to mention Obama used as many as 563 drone strikes that killed as many as 800 non-combatants, many of them innocent civilians. Obama even droned a 16 year old American boy siting in a restaurant. Abdulrahman al-Awlaki’s father had been droned two weeks prior. His father appeared to be a member of al-Quaeda but there is no evidence his son or nephew or the other five people killed with them were a threat to America. There was no outrage expressed over those drone strikes, no calls for impeachment, so why now? Because Trump did it. They must find a way to be against ANYTHING Trump does even if it benefits America….or the world. So that’s why they must defend terrorists now.
And why would Trump seek Congressional approval? Could he trust them to keep his plans secret? Trey Gowdy had this to say, “Ya’all understand what happened in Iran, right?? Deep State hits two tankers and then shoots down an American drone, which is an act of war. President Trump calls Pelosi and Schumer into his office and details the American response to them which is retaliation using military force. Pelosi and Schumer celebrate outside his office (captured in film) because they are Deep State and they finally dragged Trump into war. Minutes before the military operation was to launch President calls the mission off. Why? Because Pelosi and Schumer left his office and contacted Brennan who alerted the operatives in Iran to the location of the strike so they could move as many women and children into the zone as possible. Once all this played out and President had it all recorded, President called off the strike”.
With all the leaks since the day he took office, why would the President brief Pelosi, Schumer, the Intelligence Committee (who ran a sham impeachment against him) or Congress on his plans? The Left can’t be trusted.
The Left is only interested in removing Trump from office and if it fatally injures America, so be it. After all, if Global Governance is your goal America needs to be fatally injured. The Left has become completely unhinged. They are now against everything they used to be for. They used to think abortion should be legal but rare, illegal immigration is not good for the country, free speech and due process should be defended at all costs, communism bad, Capitalism good, America is sovereign country, assimilation necessary, America is a Judeo/Christian Country, etc.
And now they are characterizing the most evil men on the planet as a “revered religious scholar” and a “respected military commander” instead of the terrorists they are. Both are responsible for hundreds of American lives and terrorists attacks around the world.
The world is a safer place with Trump as President and Soleimani gone….and the Left can’t stand it.
