    Bernie was a no-show vote on an amendment commending the U.S. armed forces and intelligence community for the strike that barbied Shea hot shots, Q Soleimani and AMa Muhandis. Klobuchar & Warren attended and voted "nay", 53 Republicans, 10 Democrats, and Independent Angus King supported the amendment introduced by Sen. Ted Cruz, praising President Trump, and the action terminating the late piglet pair.

    The Trump administration has trained its eye on the new leader of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps Quds force, but may have a hard time targeting a commander expert in delegating behind the scenes and operating below the surface. Esmail Qaani, a bespectacled, gray-haired 62-year-old man, assumed the top post in Iran’s primary foreign operations military wing just hours after the U.S. drone strike that killed his predecessor, Gen. Qassem Soleimani, on Jan. 3. Emerging from the background, Qaani’s first major public appearance came standing near Iran's Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei on Jan. 6 as he delivered a tearful...

    Republicans are fuming over a planned move by Democrats to consider Iran legislation alongside a commemorative coin bill, saying the floor maneuver is designed to prevent changes to the Democratic-backed measures reining in President Trump’s ability to wage war. The legislative maneuver would prevent House Republicans from using a procedural tool to alter the two Iran bills at the eleventh hour since the measures would be tacked on as amendments to the coin bill. GOP lawmakers accused Democrats of attempting to silence them and said the move would set a bad precedent. “If that's the games they're going to play,...

    A new poll shows Americans are more likely than not to support President Donald Trump’s decision to order a drone strike that killed an Iranian general, even amid widespread skepticism about his foreign policy overall. The poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research was taken about two weeks after the Jan. 3 strike that killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani in Iraq. It found that 41% of Americans approved of the action while 30% disapproved of it. The rest didn’t express an opinion either way. …

    American Thinker ^ | 01/24/2020 | Andrea Widburg
    When President Trump ordered the military to strike Qassem Soleimani, a legitimate military target responsible for the deaths of hundreds of troops, Democrats were up in arms. How dare Trump bait the Iranians by striking someone so close to Ayatollah Khamenei? They were certain that Trump had just ignited World War III. Republicans were more confident that the strike would, at the very least, remove a dangerous character from the Iranians' forty-year-long war against America and, at the best, topple the regime. This last belief was based upon the fact that the Iranian regime is fragile now that Trump...

    For Democrats and their allies in the media, the standard for evaluating every situation is no longer an objective view of the facts at hand. It is, “How can we aim the news of the day against President Trump?” Sometimes this is amusing. CNN “journalists” turn themselves into experts on the proper way to feed koi. The media becomes more horrified at how the president delivers supplies to hurricane victims than at the devastation of the hurricane itself. And important questions become, did the White House misgender Conan, the hero combat dog? It’s always unhinged, but sometimes it leads to...

    Seldom, if ever, has such a powerful point been made by a Congress member without saying anything. 'I will note that there was no response' In fact, the tool U.S. Rep. Brian Mast, R-Fla., used to show the value of President Trump's decision to kill Iranian terror leader Qassem Soleimani was silence. See the powerful moment: @RepBrianMast asks for name of fallen service member that doesn't justify Soleimani killing: "I will sit here and wait..." [silence] @RepEliotEngel: "Thank you, Mr. Mast, I think you've made you're point…" Rep. Mast: "Mr. Chairman, I have not yielded back my time." pic.twitter.com/V5dagi54QD —...

    Former Obama national security adviser General James Jones (2009-2010) isn’t going to make Democrats happy with what he has to say about the dangers Iran presents and what he thinks about President Donald Trump taking out IRGC Qasem Soleimani. Many Democrats have been pushing the talking point that there was no real reason to take out Soleimani, this despite all his past killing of Americans and the attack on our embassy in Baghdad. The Democrats even tried to handcuff the president’s actions with a War Powers resolution, although it’s symbolic only. It’s an astonishing position to take, especially after...

    "Iranian general Soleimani killed Americans and he likely supplied the IED that nearly killed me," Church, who is running in the special election to fill Wisconsin's vacant Seventh Congressional District seat, says in the ad. . . . "It's the career politicians who helped coddle Iran in the first place, giving them the resources necessary to fight these wars," Church says in the video, which now has over 410,000 views. "It's the weakness of these career politicians that needs to be fought, and I will fight with President Donald Trump every day to defend our nation."

    2020 presidential candidate Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) is calling on financial regulatory agencies to investigate whether President Donald Trump broke the law when he told associates and attendees of his Mar-a-Lago club to expect something “big” in response to Iran’s killing of an American contractor in Iraq. The Daily Beast previously reported that Trump told allies at his Palm Beach club, that he had something “big” in the works to address Iran’s aggressive behavior in the region and that they would read about it “soon.” The president specifically mentioned to some of his associates at Mar-a-Lago that he’d been in...

    Mayor Pete, as he likes to be called, who has led the cry that Iran's shooting down of a Ukrainian airliner using a Russian missile is somehow the fault of an American president, Donald J. Trump, is among those who say it was "collateral damage" resulting from Trump trashing the flawed and unworkable Iran nuclear deal and his zapping of terrorist Quds Force commander Gen. Qassem Soleimani. Knowing that Democrats obey Rahm Emanuel's famous observation that a crisis is a terrible thing to waste, Mayor Pete wasted no time attaching his name to the slander that the 176 innocents aboard...

    Obama’s True Legacy… The seemingly inexplicable mourning of leftists and mainstream media over liquidated Iranian General Qasem Soleimani is slowly beginning to make sense. It is increasingly clear that Iran has infiltrated the U.S. government on various levels, including the very top, and it’s not a new problem. When it comes to the intelligence community, no one is handing out secrets, but the picture painted by what is known is disturbing enough to warrant investigation. Iran is the next chapter in the unfolding saga of the Democratic effort to sell and tear down America. We know about other brought-to-you-by-Democrats infiltrators:...

    Donald Trump said Monday that Democrats are a 'disgrace' to the U.S., insisting those within the party are defending slain Iranian General Qassem Soleimani. 'When the Democrats try and defend him – it's a disgrace to our country, they can't do that. And let me tell you, it's not working politically very well for them,' Trump told reporters before departing the White House for New Orleans where he will attend the college football national championship game. Democrats have lamented the president didn’t inform Congress before launching the attack and have raised questions over the intelligence that led the president to...

    MELVILLE, N.Y. — Chris Levi’s fellow soldiers were sure he was dead. The Humvee he commanded in Baghdad had been torn apart by a projectile, and so had his body. When he awoke several minutes later, he followed his training, trying to assess his injuries. “I tried to wiggle my toes, and I couldn’t move them,” he recalled. Fearing he had been paralyzed, he reached down to feel his lower body. “It’s kind of hard to describe,” he said. “You could feel wet meat, and I knew I lost my legs.” The device that nearly killed Mr. Levi in 2008...

    Pics at link. American troops are in the process of clearing debris and rubble from an area the size of a football stadium Monday at a military base in western Iraq that was hit by Iranian airstrikes. The attack on the Ain al-Asad base last Wednesday, where about 1,500 American and coalition forces are stationed, was carried out in retaliation for the killing of Iranian Revolutionary Guards Gen. Qassem Soleimani. An Associated Press crew touring the facility Monday saw damaged military trailers as well as forklifts lifting rubble and loading it onto trucks. “There were more than 10 large missiles...

    At a campaign rally last week in Dover, New Hampshire, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) told her audience that she couldn't think of a good reason why President Trump ordered the recent deadly airstrike on Iranian terror leader Qasem Soleimani. "Why not a month ago?" she asked. "Why not a month from now?" She ventured a guess and concluded that it was pure politics. "One of the questions I raised just right after this came out, does this have anything to do with the fact that Donald Trump is right on the eve of an impeachment hearing?" she asked. Rep. Dan...

    Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich on Monday praised President Trump for supporting anti-government protests erupting at Iranian universities across the country. He said Trump is demonstrating a clear contrast between himself and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., noting the president's tweet in Farsi -- the language spoken in Iran -- showing solidarity with the demonstrators. “You have Pelosi over here on the side of an impeachment nobody wants, defending an Iranian dictatorship nobody wants,” Gingrich told “Fox & Friends.” The protests erupted on Saturday following Iran's claim that it unintentionally shot down a Ukrainian passenger plane with surface-to-air missiles, killing...
