American Trump Derangement Syndrome Is An Iranian Strategic Asset

American Trump Derangement Syndrome Is An Iranian Strategic Asset

One which may cause the Iranians to misjudge American resolve.

One word summarizes the past three days since the killing of Major General Qassem Soleimani, the commander of the Quds Force of Iran’s Islamic Revolution Guards Corps, by an American drone on order of Donald Trump: Speculation.

The media is full of speculation as to what will happen next, from World War III (which apparently trended on Twitter and caused a server overload at the Selective Service Administration) to not much (because Iran is in no position to spark an all-out war), and everything in between. Reasonable and reasoned arguments can be made for dozens of scenarios (but not World War III).

What strikes me is how Trump Derangement Syndrome has overwhelmed the Democrat and media responses. This cannot be lost on the Iranians.

While the pleas for Mullah mercy from the likes of Rose McGowan and Michael Moore, and the woke rants of Colin Kaepernick, may be laughed off by the Mullahs as typical western weakness, the reaction of Democrat politicians is more serious and may lead to Iranian miscalculation that Americans will turn on Trump before they turn on the Mullahs.

It’s clear that Democrats are doing to the killing of Soleimani, who has the blood of thousands of Americans on his hands, what they did to Russia Collusion and every other anti-Trumpism that motivates their throbbing Trump-hating base.

If Iran is successful in attacking a U.S. target or targets, Democrats and the media will blame Trump, not the regime that has been chanting for our death since the 1979 Islamic Revolution in Iran. It’s not unreasonable to believe based on their behavior that Democrats and the media are hoping Iran gives us a bloody nose or worse so that it can be used against Trump in the 2020 election.

As with the attempt to remove Trump from office even before he was in office, this goes beyond mere disagreement with Trump’s policies. There is and will be an active attempt to freeze and disrupt the administration in a confrontation with Iran. It won’t work in the short run, but it will be something Trump will have to deal with as some congressional Republicans succumb to the pressure and the media goes all in.

American Trump Derangement Syndrome is an Iranian strategic asset, and one which may cause the Iranians to misjudge American resolve.

    Spot on.

      I had a great epiphany this week, and realized it is ALL about money: everyone on the swamp/left/islamic axis side of things is looking for a payday, something free, or taking something owned by someone else. This includes the media hacks we’ve been complaining about, the swine in congress we’ve been complaining about, dumbass students selling their souls for free MP3 downloads, the WAY OVERPAID rats who educate them (think: Fauxchantas at harvard), all the way up to pelosi, biden, obama, clinton then further up to soros. Bloomberg is part of this hell.

      In other words: name ONE parasite from the swamp/left/islamic cabal that has EVER scarificedm something or given anything up for their cause. NONE.

      All you have to do is look at the paucity of charity donations by biden, pelosi, kerry, clinton (most galling is that she’s actually stealing charity money) and the like: they’ve given next to NOTHING of their own money.

        RE: Their stinginess with charitable giving from their own money.

        I was about to point out that they don’t believe there is any money which isn’t the government’s money to start. But then I realized that only holds true for our money, not their money.

Near as I can tell, Soleimani was to be the keynote speaker at the DNC convention this summer. The struggle is real.

Iran isn’t dumb. They see the chaos of the impeachment and TDS as a great way to get their way.

The leftist media and Demorats are complicit in giving aid and comfort to our enemy.

I am only surprised that a Ms. Fonda wannabe hasn’t put on a hijab and sat on a missile launcher yet in Iran. Then again, they may have just booked a flight to do just that.

Kneel. Good girl.

Some unlucky families slept without sheets during the lefties’ visit.

Looks like the Democrats are deliberately colluding with the Persian Imperialists to influence the outcome of the 2020 US Presidential Election…..

Iran will just wait and see if Trump is reelected. If he is, the mullahs will know they are for all time screwed because their own people hate them. That’s the part that all these ME “experts” conveniently forget. The Iranian people loathe their own government/leadership and have been trying, since ’79, to get out from under their tyrannical thumb.

Obama could have done something but he chose to ignore the situation because it didn’t comport with his delusional view of a “post-America” world. History will not be kind to Obama on Iran (or much else).

Trump doesn’t want endless wars in the ME. That means that we won’t have endless wars in the ME. We won’t have our warriors’ hands tied by Washington craziness, we won’t have our fighter pilots seeking approval from a DC lawyer to fire on an enemy combatant, and we won’t see a long, drawn-out BS thing. The way to end wars is to win them, and Trump is playing to win.

Trump is not Obama, and as this sinks in over in Iran, they will stand down. What is their choice? We can blast them into the stone age in a New York minute, and they know it. They’ve always known we could always do it, but they counted on weak, appeasement-minded yellow-belly presidents kow-towing to their ridiculous ankle-yapping. Trump is not playing their game, and if they haven’t figured that out already, they soon will.

    “Trump is not Obama…”

    More approppos would be: “Trump is not Jimmy Carter.”

    In this case with obama, he was bribed by the iranians. BRIBED. Carter was just lame.

    Obama needs to be brought to justice.

      “Obama needs to be brought to justice.”

      He won’t be. Ever. Adjust.

        We patriots may resort to Natural Law.


        That’s like thinking: “Jeb! is the nominee…”

        Adjust? No way!

        Clinton either.

          Well, no, it’s nothing like that at all. We can affect the outcome of elections with our votes and by sharing our opinions in ways that we hope change minds, by donating to campaigns, by manning phones and knocking on doors. We cannot affect what the DOJ does or doesn’t do, and we can’t vote out anyone who won’t investigate, charge, and prosecute Obama and his traitorous horde. Apples. Oranges.


        I replied to your message, but thought about your response again. I’m shocked you are willing to settle for the grotesque corruption and treason of barack obama being given a pass. If the pass is given, it will be a pass to every future corrupt traitor holding high office – in advance.

        I urge you to rethink what you thought: if obama is not brought to justice one way or another, we are one election away from being toast.

          I think Fuzzy is telling you what the most likely outcome is –

          Obama will skate. Making America Great can’t be done when 1/2 the country goes bonkers because you are prosecuting a POS like Obama. So, get those under him, damage the reputation 100%, but unless you have 100% proof positive of something really damaging that even the progs will agree on, no prosecution.

          That’s reality, not settling for corruption and treason.


          Whatever the “likely” outcome, the effort must be made. Otherwise, it’s a future full and free pass to the next democrat president to completely corrupt the government and betray the nation all over again.

          Look, murders have been committed in the course of this corruption (epstein, seth rich). Massive bribery by hostile foreign powers of the highest government officials, both elected and appointed. We even have the suspected blackmail of a supreme court judge (roberts).

          Give up on this one, and we’ve lost the nation in the next election, because the swamp/left/islamic axis will have zero brakes, and go for it all. That’ll mean martial law.

          JusticeDelivered in reply to | January 6, 2020 at 1:30 pm

          Well, the half who would be mad about prosecuting Obama are already mad. So we might as well hold him accountable. Michelle is style, Obama is polish, both without substance.

          I appreciate where you are coming from, Fine, but Barry pretty much nailed what I meant. Would I like to see Obama brought to justice? Yes. Will he be? No.

          I’d love to be wrong.

        CincyJan in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | January 8, 2020 at 4:46 am

        I think you’re right, Fuzzy Slippers. I like to believe that Obama was elected, in the main, by Americans who saw the oportunity to vote for the first biracial American president, and grabbed it. Keeping him in office, pretending all was well, required a lot of conscious pretense. Certainly, by the end of his second term, he was so certain of his brainless support that he and his minions blatantly lied to the American people, not once or twice but regularly. Yet his supporters never turned on him. Today’s DTS is a direct reaction to having their illusions destroyed. It’s as if they’re drug addicts in the midst of withdrawal. We – the rational remnant – must somehow find some way of healing the country without further tearing it apart. Attacking Obama would just continue the insanity. Let reality sink in slowly as time passes. In the meantime, we can go after his minions. Susan Rice, the Official Liar, is still being interviewed and take seriously by the sycophant press. She is fair game. As is Eric Holder, and maybe even Valerie Jarrett, who was probably most responsible for the Iran nuclear payoff.

        There is no point in being so judgmental we make a martyr out of a man who has already let down the countery so badly. It’s unlikely he would ever be convicted anyway. He is too well protected by the left and their supporters. Pick a fight we can win.

    alaskabob in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | January 5, 2020 at 11:23 pm

    I still put money on something happening in the US by Iran’s Quds forces. The Left would blame Trump for not protecting the borders, etc, etc, etc. Iran needs to have a “victory” to show the Arab world especially their proxies that they mean business. Our false security is “distance”. Israel knows how to deal with this and is a front line asset for US security, but I do not have confidence that Dems and the like would “see something…say something” if they could get yardage from it.

      Barry in reply to alaskabob. | January 6, 2020 at 12:31 am

      Maybe, but then they know Trump will respond and put them as a target.

      So, I doubt it. Trump has done what should be done. And the Iranians know it.

      oldgoat36 in reply to alaskabob. | January 6, 2020 at 5:02 am

      I can see them trying to do something, my fear is the deep state embedded in the FBI and CIA would assist, not actively in bringing them in, but burying knowledge and turning a blind eye to it. This to me is the more frightening aspect to contemplate. I have no doubt that the left would back them if it is a chance to damage Trump, but Americans would more likely rally around Trump if an attack happened in the US, making it worse for their cause.
      It depends on how much collateral damage they believe would be acceptable to them. And the calculation of damage to Trump vs. profit to the left in terms of power.
      I see Iran trying to pull attacks in the ME more than on American soil. Possibly even against Israel as a proxy.

        Barry in reply to oldgoat36. | January 6, 2020 at 9:49 am

        The FIB and CYA are not the only repository’s of intelligence. We have the military intelligence and they are, IMO, without suspicion at this point. We also have Israeli intelligence among others.

        For either of those to assist in any way an operation by the Iranians against the US, they better be undetectable by all the other intelligence assets out there…

    Amen to everything you said. Trump started the clock and we are counting down to 52. It’s really up to the Iranian regime to decide how fast they want the countdown to proceed. Meanwhile, the pressure keeps building, their power drains, and the natives get more restless.

    For those who believe this is the beginning of WWIII, who exactly is desperate for Iranian oil? Russia (exporter)? China (African colonies)? Europe (decide: US or Russian imports)? Trump isn’t playing a tactical game of inches. He just reset the game rules. Iran is just not worth it.

    There is going to be a counter-revolution. The mullahs will eventually be begging to negotiate to stay in power. I expect the countdown won’t go further than 4-5 as it is in everyone’s interest (except Democrats and Hollywood) for Iran to to be taken out. The mouse will die before the cat is done playing with it.

    JusticeDelivered in reply to Fuzzy Slippers. | January 6, 2020 at 8:53 am

    I agree with most of what you say, but I think you may be glossing over how the Iranians are fatalistic, in that they think whatever happens to them is Allah’s will. So the question is will they look at and understand the situation rationally, or will they delude themselves that Allah will save them?

    While the Iranian people make dislike the theocracy, I bet that a very large percentage of them are much like the palestinians, and are rabid.

      Iran is Shia (as opposed to the majority Sunni in the Muslim world), and they do have a death cult. Still, it’s unlikely that the current leadership, religeous or secular, believes they are the ones who should be sacrificed.

notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital | January 5, 2020 at 9:05 pm

The Mullah dictators haven’t learned about the Obama Reverse Midas Touch that now infects the Dem Party and their Media slaves.

Watching the reaction of the Dims it seems like it was a bad move simply because President Donald Trump did it. The TDS is strong.

    Edward in reply to 94Corvette. | January 5, 2020 at 11:49 pm

    Watching the reaction of the Dims makes it clear they are trying to sell the story that it was a bad move simply because President Donald Trump did it.


It’s like the American left has no idea that the Iranian regime is an extreme reactionary theocracy. American leftists would suffer tremendously under that regime. They would be imprisoned, tortured and/or killed for many, if not all of their closely held leftist beliefs.

The likes of these rats are not being appreciated by all of hollywood. There is pushback.

For example, watch Ricky Gervais’ HILARIOUS and insulting (to hollywood) monologue in this years’ 2020 Golden Globes:


Brennan, Comey, Kerry, Obama, Trudeau.

    mrzee in reply to Petrushka. | January 6, 2020 at 8:59 pm

    Trudeau’s been on vacation for the last 2 weeks. He probably forgot to take someone with to read the news to him.

Democrats need Ameeicans to die so they can blame Trump.

At this point it’s difficult to tell Iranian and Democrat positions apart as they are so similar.

Looks like the sales force for Uncle Habibe’s Bedouin and Camel Outfitters.

During 2016, Droney McPeacePrize dropped 26,000 bombs … on the right people.

Trump’s deviation is that he went after the “elite” who feel the protection of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (1961).

It does not matter, in the long run, what the leaders of Iran think about the US. In the end, all that matters is that the US can send the entire country back to the stone age in a little over 72 hours. The citizens of Iran are already sharpening their pitchforks and are making torches, because of the way the leadership has reduced the standard of living enjoyed by the populous. As long as the US does not put boots on the ground in Iran, they are much more likely to turn on THEIR leadership than support them. No populous really wants to see their government engaged in foreign adventurism.

Add to that the fact that the US has the most effective military in the world, controls nearly 30% of the WORLD’S consumer market, domestically, and is unarguably the most benevolent world power in history We are not now, and never have, endeavoring to rule any territory outside the continental US, with the exception of the Pacific refueling territories in the Pacific [Midway, Guam and the Hawaiian islands]. We have an economy so great, that people have been sneaking into this country for the last several centuries. And, we share that with the rest of the world. The common folk of the world, who have any contact with the US, have nothing against us. It is only those in positions of power or control who are concerned about the US.

The leadership of the rest of the world may whine and complain when the US takes reasonable steps to protect its citizens and interests, but when the s**t hits the fan, almost all the nations of the world are going to sit back say, “well,, Iran should not have poked the bear”. Even China is not going to engage in military action, as it would destroy their economy.

All a war with Iran would really cost the US, is the munitions expended to level the place. And that would just bolster the earning capacity for workers in the defense industry.

    I think this is a good take, Mac.

    You make a great point, too. One thing that has always amazed me is how so few seem to understand that we are, indeed, a benevolent world power. We don’t keep the land we win, we give it back to the people who live there. We don’t plaster our president’s face on their stamps and currency, we don’t demand obedience, we aren’t running their governments or micro-managing their populations. We win, and we hand the win over to the country’s people hoping they will make good choices.

    Honestly, I get so sick of the America is a colonist nation thing; we are not. We don’t build an American empire; we do the exact opposite because we have no interest in ruling the world. Unlike any communist or Islamist regime you can name. They all want to rule the world with a genocidal hammer.

And Democrats hate that Mac!

    Mac45 in reply to mailman. | January 6, 2020 at 12:41 pm

    I do not really think that Democrats, even Democrat leaders, really hate what the US is, basically. Even Bernie Sanders did not turn over his profits from his book to charity and certainly does not live like the majority of the electorate, and certainly not in a three room walk-up with no heat.

    It is all about power, for the elite. They NEED to control the masses while not killing the golden goose which THEY all enjoy. They promised the African American community that they would elevate them, economically, and socially. They did neither, for DECADES, the Republican’s did. The Dems promised two chickens in every pot and did not provide that for decades; the Republican’s did. As long as the payoffs keep flowing in, usually from foreign sources, Dem and GOP politicians LOVE the USA. Is is all about the Benjamins and WHO ends up with them.

      Mac, you wrote: “I do not really think that Democrats, even Democrat leaders, really hate what the US is, basically. Even Bernie Sanders did not turn over his profits from his book to charity and certainly does not live like the majority of the electorate, and certainly not in a three room walk-up with no heat.”

      Breadline Bernie is a communist to his brittle core. That he doesn’t give his profits over is not evidence to the contrary; instead, it is just the way communism works. There are the elite who rule and have all the percs and then there are the others, who should be happy to stand in breadlines because that means food is free.

      NO communist expects to live in a three-room walk-up; that’s for the little people who do the actual work, on whose backs they live like kings. Do you think AOC expects to work in her Green New Deal world refitting houses with solar panels? Of course she doesn’t, and if she thought for one second that would be her Green New Deal government-appointed job, she’d become a capitalist in a second flat.

      You’re right, it is about power, but even the die-hard believers in communism like Bernie truly believe that the unwashed masses are the worker bees on whose backs they will live the lives of pampered royalty. There is no hypocrisy here, that’s how communism works. Bernie knows this, so of course he is entitled to his millions. It’s the rest of us who should be equally impoverished and dependent on the government from cradle to grave.

2smartforlibs | January 6, 2020 at 2:54 pm

These feminists, me too type whatever you want to call them. Hate the US just kiss the ring of a regime that would have them put to death. These people are too ignorant to take care of themselves and are a threat to others and themselves.

The ‘cultural site” mentioned by Pres. Trump is a code word for the huge mausoleum where Ayatollah Khomeini is entombed. ….Trump knows how to rattle their cage big time.

Yes, TDS is an Iranian asset. What if I told you that’s by design, Professor?
