Elizabeth Warren now avoids calling Soleimani a “murderer” after left-wing criticism

Elizabeth Warren now avoids calling Soleimani a “murderer” after left-wing criticism

Now the Iranian terror chief, killed in a U.S. drone strike, is referred to as a “senior foreign military official”

Following the U.S. killing Iranian terror master Qassem Soleimani, the left officially lost their minds.  Apparently, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) didn’t get the memo.

In her first attempt at a presidential-sounding Twitter response, she called Soleimani a “murderer.” She quickly received the wrath of the leftist Twitter mob and, predictably, issued a new take that did not include the word “murderer.”

Here is her initial response:

https://twitter.com/ewarren/status/1212951889060470788?ref_src=twsrc^tfwThe left went absolutely insane that she called a murderer a murderer.

Well, you get the idea.  Apparently, the blowback was too much for Warren.

The Washington Examiner reports:

But even acknowledging that the man responsible for hundreds of American deaths and for orchestrating the Iranian strategy in the Middle East was a bad guy was too much for the Left to handle. Liberals quickly jumped on Warren’s comments, attacking her for employing the language used by hawks to justify war.

Fading in polls and dipping in fundraising ahead of the Iowa caucuses, Warren has little room to alienate the Left. So she then released a follow-up statement stripped of any criticism of Soleimani, and instead focused exclusively on attacking President Trump for an attack that she rebranded as an “assassination.”

First, this was not an assassination. This was a lawful military strike conducted in a war zone in which the United States is legitimately established. Soleimani was an enemy commander who had acted against the U.S. repeatedly, and the U.S. was well within its rights to take him out. The only act of war was Iran’s by putting one of its commanders in Iraq to help plan and direct attacks against U.S. troops, which was Soleimani’s intent.

Labeling Soleimani’s death an assassination is not only dishonest; it’s damaging — not to Trump, as Warren certainly intended, but to the U.S.’s foreign policy interests as a whole. As commander in chief, Trump has the right and the responsibility to direct the military and defend this nation’s interests. That leading politicians are openly questioning, and thus undermining, that authority is ridiculous, though unsurprising. This is Trump, after all, and most Democratic politicians would do or say anything to send a few jabs his way. (Of course, few of these Democrats, if any at all, were willing to say the same of President Barack Obama when he ordered the attack on Osama bin Laden, or when he unilaterally pushed through the Iran nuclear deal despite Congress’s opposition).

Here’s her “new and improved” response, including the reference to the strike as an “assassination”:

After caving to the Twitter mob, Warren defended her use of the word “assassination”:

She has completely lost all sense of reality and is even refusing to prioritize killing terrorist leaders if she were elected.

And when pressed for a reasonable comment on her dual(ing) statements, Warren switches to talking about President Trump. Because Orange Man Bad.

Warren does this all the time. She’ll say she believes something, find out that potential voters disagree, and then change her beliefs accordingly. This time it played out in hours. On Twitter. For all the world to see.

She’s a lying, pathological piece of garbage. It doesn’t matter what she calls anyone.

Most important to Fauxcahontas, it has always seemed, is what she calls herself.

And selling out our country has never been a challenge for her.

    I’m just guessing here, but Lying Beaver must have been a world class gymnast in her youth for her to be able to change direction so easily at her age

Sometimes I think Trump does things like this just to stampede the sheep.

Playing the What-If Game,

Try to think up some of the excuses these lefties would offer justifying Japan for its attacking the US’s Pearl Harbor,

or

Some of the reasons lefties would offer as to why the D-Day operation was wholly unnecessary and certainly disproportionate.

That fascist mullah enslaving iran just signed his death warrant.

Iran offers $80M bounty for President Trump’s head:

This should be fun.

“We’re on the brink of yet another war in the Middle East—one that would be devastating in terms of lives lost and resources wasted.”

Iranian’s are facing devastation, perhaps total annihilation, if they continue on their current path.

They are under the mistaken impression that Allah will protect them, and they have been allowed to do a bunch of dirty deadly deeds. Now they cannot cope with accountability. It seems likely that they may make the mistake of escalating when they should be cowering.

    Read this to see why the Fake Democrat party and their Fake Media love muslim so much.

Just let her talk. She is outing herself.

“We’re on the brink of yet another war in the Middle East—one that would be devastating in terms of lives lost and resources wasted. We’re not here by accident. We’re here because a reckless president, his allies, and his administration have spent years pushing us here.”

8 years, to be specific. 2009-2017

So if Iran is offering $80 million bounty, that’s about 80 cruise missiles, right? I suspect there are a number of US military specialists picking out exact targets that will cause the most pain right now.

So Trump is worse than Hitler while mass murderer Soleimani is merely a senior military official. Got it.

Scott Ritter is bashing Warren?

There’s something especially strange about Ritter. Back in the early 90’s through mid 90’s he was often on right wing radio talk shows talking about Saddam and the weapons shell game Saddam played in the desert with the IOC. I distinctly remember Ritter on talk shows. I’m pretty sure he was on Art Bell when Bell was still a second-tier talker out of KDWN – and this was before Art Bell dove into the Alien/Paranormal garbage he got famous for.

Then, almost inexplicably, Ritter did a 180 degree turn. I think it was the very end of 1990’s. Maybe 1998-99? He began saying things opposite to what he’d been saying for years and years. Back when all of that went down I couldn’t figure out why Ritter changed his tune.

Then, maybe two/three years after that? He gets busted on a pedo rap? So it’s not unrealistic to think he was compromised by our own intelligence services and flipped to support the anti-Bush narrative? Or he was turned to kneecap Clinton and the Bushies outed him when he was no longer useful? I’ve still no idea what really happened or why it went down like that.

Politico:

Former U.N. weapons inspector turned Iraq war critic Scott Ritter has been caught in a police sex sting, the Pocono Record reports:

A former chief United Nations weapons inspector is accused of contacting what he thought was a 15-year-old girl in an Internet chat room, engaging in a sexual conversation and showing himself masturbating on a Web camera.

Scott Ritter of Delmar, N.Y., who served as chief U.N. weapons inspector in Iraq from 1991-98 and who was an outspoken critic of the second Bush administration in the run-up to the war in Iraq, is accused of contacting what turned out to be a Barrett Township police officer posing undercover as a teen girl. (Affidavit). […]

According to reports, Ritter was charged in a June 2001 Internet sex sting in New York, but that case was dismissed.

He had been charged with attempted child endangerment after arranging in an online chatroom to meet what he thought was a 16-year-old girl at a Burger King restaurant. The girl turned out to be an undercover policewoman.

>>>>>> Ritter said the criminal charge was a smear campaign in response to his criticizing U.S. policy in the Middle East. …

Where were these folks when Obama had that religious leader bin Laden killed?

There is a renewed opportunity to mitigate progress in the Middle East, starting with full disclosure of JCPOA, Obama’s quid pro bo and greater Middle East wars, refugee crises (e.g. anti-nativism, democratic gerrymandering, trail of tears), Iranian terrorist proxies, and for her to reconcile with her neighbors.

Lizzy is a lawyer who doesn’t understand the law. As a potential Commander-in-Chief she appears to even more feckless that Jimmy Carter. Does she have a plan to fix that?

Terrorist thug al-Baghdadi is labeled an “austere religious scholar.” State terrorist thug Soleimani is romanticized and whitewashed as a “poet” and a “foreign official.”

The Dhimmi-crats are vile, feckless, morally bankrupt and utterly contemptible.

If these contemporary idiots had been around during World War II, they’d have described Adolf Hitler as merely a “former painter and decorated war veteran.”

Grey Beaver can avoid calling Soleimani a murderer all she wants, but his fingerprints were on every IED and EFP that killed or maimed a service member in Iraq.

Warren’s “positioning” is one of the biggest problems that I have with the left today. No courage of any convictions. Her 1st instinct was to rightly call him a murderer, but shes gets a little pushback and it’s Time To Remessage that statement! The left sells out to what is clearly the good and right position all in favor of pandering.

Crazy Lizzie should be listening to “Steve Hilton breaks down how President Trump’s foreign policy helps Americans here at home.”
