  • Joe Lieberman: Founding Fathers would have wanted a Trump acquittal

    Former Democratic Connecticut Sen. Joe Lieberman said that he does not believe there was evidence to impeach President Trump and believes he would have voted to acquit if he were still in the Senate. "The call that President Trump made with President Zelensky of Ukraine was inappropriate, was wrong, it shouldn't have been done," Lieberman said to the Blaze’s Glenn Beck. “But did it reach the point where we can say nine months before an election ... that, if we keep him in office, he represents a danger to the country? I don't think so," he added. Lieberman did say...

    The Iran deal was never meant to stop Iran from building a bomb—it was supposed to delay it until disaster happened on someone else’s watchIn the wake of the targeted killing of Iranian terror master Qassem Soleimani, an interesting fight has broken out—after Donald Trump failed to brief them in advance of the strike, Democrats began fulsomely criticizing the president. This led Republican lawmakers to accuse their counterparts across the aisle of pro-terrorist sympathies. Maybe Republicans are still sore that Barack Obama compared them to Iranian hardliners like Soleimani for denouncing his signature foreign policy initiative, the Iran nuclear deal,...

    An Iranian has called for a multi-million dollar bounty on President Donald Trump for the killing of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani in Iraq in a .legal military operation. If Iranians would accept removal from office instead of death, Democrats like Nancy Pelosi might have a chance at the reward.

    Qassem Soleimani to the millions of people of Iran, Iraq, Syria and the Middle East, was known as the butcher of families & the destroyer of cities. But for the Democrats, he was innocent and President Trump was the one that killed an innocent man, but the forget that Soleimani was responsible for at least 600 US soldier deaths in Iraq. The Dems might want to take those words back because the recent video shows the real character of the now killed terrorist Qasem Soleimani and his followers.

    Senate Democratic leadership is urging President Trump to declassify the official war powers notification he submitted to Congress regarding the killing of Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani via a drone strike. Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer and Senate Foreign Relations Committee Ranking Member Bob Menendez wrote a letter Sunday to Mr. Trump asking him to release the notification that was transmitted to Congress this weekend. The letter to the president was made public on Monday. “It is critical that national security matters of such import be shared with the American people in a timely manner,” Mr. Schumer and Mr. Menendez wrote. “An entirely classified notification is simply not...

    The assassination of Iranian general Qassem Soleimani is an unusual, possibly aberrant, event. The killing of this individual leader of a sovereign state may lead to all-out war between Iran and the U.S. — or, on the other hand, the assassination may bring an end to the cycle of Iranian violence countered by U.S. and world diplomatic flatulence and appeasement. Assassinating the leaders of terrorist organizations — i.e., non-state actors, such as Osama bin Laden and Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi — did not lead to a greater war footing against the USA because, as terrorist organization leaders, not heads of state,...

    BEIRUT (AP) — The latest on U.S.-Iran tensions (all times local): 4:45 p.m. Iraq’s parliament has voted to expel the U.S. military from the country. Lawmakers voted Sunday in favor of a resolution that calls for ending foreign military presence in the country. The resolution’s main aim is to get the U.S. to withdraw some 5,000 U.S. troops present in different parts of Iraq. The vote comes two days after a U.S. airstrike killed Iranian Gen. Qassem Soleimani inside Iraq, dramatically increasing regional tensions. The Iraqi resolution specifically calls for ending an agreement in which Washington sent troops to Iraq...

    It’s down to the last gasp, ALL ABOUT THEM! The Democrats’ reaction to the takedown of the world’s most brutal terrorist says more about the Democrats than anything else to date. Qassem Soleimani, leader of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, killed more than 600 U.S. soldiers; slaughtered thousands of civilian innocents and was on his way to yet another planned slaughter when he was taken down by an American drone—but the Democrats are trying to make a death that saw Iraqis dancing on the street at the news of his death—ALL ABOUT THEM.

    One night in January of 2007, American Special Operations commandos tracked a notorious adversary driving in a convoy from Iran into northern Iraq: Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani, Iran’s top security and intelligence commander. But the Americans held their fire, and Soleimani slipped away into the darkness.

    Rep. Ilhan Omar accused President Trump of trying to create a "distraction" by killing Gen. Qassim Soleimani in an attempt to ignite a war with Iran. "So what if Trump wants war, knows this leads to war and needs the distraction?" the Minnesota Democrat said Thursday on Twitter. "Real question is, will those with congressional authority step in and stop him? I know I will."

    The best way to neutralize Iran is to have them overstretch. An older, forgotten grand strategy where adversaries bleed each other is in the Western interest. Here’s all one needs to know about what is happening in Iraq: As France 24 reported, “Iraqi security forces made no effort to stop the protesters as they marched to the heavily-fortified Green Zone after a funeral held for those killed in the US air strikes, letting them pass through a security checkpoint leading to the area.” Consider that for a moment, and let the anger surge through your veins.These are the same people...

    Sen. Chris Murphy expressed dismay that the United States killed Iranian Gen. Qassim Soleimani without first obtaining congressional approval. "Soleimani was an enemy of the United States," the Connecticut Democrat tweeted Thursday night. "That’s not a question. The question is this — as reports suggest, did America just assassinate, without any congressional authorization, the second most powerful person in Iran, knowingly setting off a potential massive regional war?" Soleimani, 62, was killed Thursday in an airstrike near Baghdad International Airport along with Abu Mahdi al Muhandis, head of the Iranian-backed Popular Mobilization Forces. Murphy attacked President Trump last week for...

    The Washington Post had eyes rolling on Twitter Thursday over a headline about the death of Iranian Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani in a U.S. airstrike. “Breaking news: Airstrike at Baghdad airport kills Iran’s most revered military leader, Qasem Soleimani, Iraqi state television reports,” the WaPo headline read. While some brushed off the headline, believing it was in reference to how Iraqi state television reported the situation, just two paragraphs into the story the same language is used by the story’s writers. "Defense Secretary Mark T. Esper said the Pentagon had taken 'decisive defensive action' against Soleimani, the revered military figure who...

In the 22-second video which Pompeo shared on Twitter, people are seen running on a road carrying a several meter-long Iraq national flag. The video is of some unspecified location in Iraq. This comes hours after the United States confirmed that Soleimani has been killed in a defence strike near Baghdad International Airport.

    WITH RECENT U.S. and British allegations that shipments of explosives similar to those used by Iran's Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps (IRGC) are being shipped into Iraq from Iran for use by the insurgency, it is long past time for American policy-makers to examine the role of Iranian Brigadier General Qassem Suleimani and the Qods (Jerusalem) Force unit under his command in fomenting and facilitating anti-American terrorist activity since the September 11 attacks.The very nature of General Suleimani's position within the IRGC warrants him being on America's radar. As the commander of Qods Force, Suleimani is charged with overseeing the IRGC's...

Speaking of WINNING, wasn’t it just a couple of months ago when the U.S. military took out ISIS honcho Abu Bakr Al Baghdadi? Yep. But that turned out...
