Democratic House lawmakers want the most powerful nation on earth to ‘take a knee’ in the face of religious fanatics and tyrants hell bent on death, destruction and mayhem. While they make the world a more dangerous place, we should passively retreat in fear.
President Donald Trump is on the offensive, vowing Monday that Iran will “NEVER” have a nuclear weapon. Its leaders announced Sunday they would no longer comply with limits set by the 2015 Obama-era agreement reached between Tehran and other world powers to curb its nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
The president has also been forced to use military action after the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani and several Iran-backed militia leaders in a drone strike. Democratic House lawmakers want Trump to be submissively restrained while American citizens are killed and U.S. targets in Iraq are bombed with the help of Iranian-backed forces.
Trump spoke to reporters on Air Force One while returning from vacation in Mar-a-Lago, responding to the threat by Iraqi lawmakers to expel US troops from the country in retaliation, a move which could trigger a resurgence of ISIS.
‘It’ll make Iranian sanctions look somewhat tame,’ said Trump. ‘If they do ask us to leave — if we don’t do it in a very friendly basis — we will charge them sanctions like they’ve never seen before,” he said.
“We have a very extraordinarily expensive air base that’s there. It cost billions of dollars to build. Long before my time. We’re not leaving unless they pay us back for it,” the president said.
Meanwhile the pusillanimous House intends to vote on a resolution limiting Trump’s military actions toward Iran following his decision to take out Soleimani.
Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote a letter to her Democratic members Sunday announcing that the House will introduce a vote on a “War Powers Resolution” mandating that the White House must cease military hostilities with Iran within 30 days if no further congressional action is taken. The resolution will be led by Rep. Elissa Slotkin (D-MI), a former CIA and Department of Defense analyst specializing in Shia militias.
Worse yet, Democrats are continuing to champion the opening of our borders to the world. We should just let the huddled masses in, even if there are terrorists hiding among them.
The deadly shooting at a US naval base in December, allegedly perpetrated by Saudi national Mohammed Alshamrani, should have been a gut check for our Democratic lawmakers that American lives are at stake, even when we are cooperatively helping other countries.
The 21-year-old second lieutenant in the Royal Saudi Air Force and a student naval flight officer, opened fire in a classroom building at Naval Air Station Pensacola in Florida, killing three American sailors.
The victims were Ensign Joshua Kaleb Watson, from Coffee, Alabama, who had just graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy, Airman Mohammed Sameh Haitham, 19, of St. Petersburg, Florida, and Airman Apprentice Cameron Scott Walters, 21, of Richmond Hill, Georgia.
The FBI has assessed the shootings to be an act of terrorism. It is just a taste of the bloodshed that our enemies continue to plot when allowed on US soil, exploiting us when we let our guard down.
Bat-dung crazy Pelosi wants us all to just sit here and do what we are told in fear because we are ‘making the bad people angry.’ Meanwhile warmongers threaten to destroy our homeland.
America no longer has the option of appeasement. The terrorists are already in action, both here and abroad, so let us stop impeding the most powerful military in the world.
The time has come for them to act decisively without Democrats getting in the way. The military must be allowed to use appropriate force because there is no longer any reason to doubt that we are in imminent danger. Luckily any war resolution is expected to be vetoed by the president with the help of unified Republicans in the Senate.
