Killing of Iran’s Soleimani Brings Out the TDS in Democrats

Killing of Iran’s Soleimani Brings Out the TDS in Democrats

Yeah, Soleimani was bad, but ORANGE MAN BADDER.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkc26cHAYsk

Remember when President Barack Obama put troops in Syria without Congressional approval? Remember when he droned a U.S. citizen and his family without Congressional approval?

Silence from the left. But now that President Donald Trump ordered an attack that killed Iran’s Qassem Soleimani, the architect behind the regime’s war on America and Israel, Democrats now care about the Constitution.

2020 Democratic Presidential Hopefuls

Michael Bloomberg

Joe Biden

Elizabeth Warren

Bernie Sanders

Democrats in Congress

Now Sen. Murphy gives a damn about Congressional approval:

Rep. Ilhan Omar is another that all of a sudden cares:

Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi:

Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney

Sen. Brian Schatz

Sen. Tom Udall

Da Nang Dick Blumenthal

The Left

Ben Rhodes, one of Obama’s national security guys, continues to prove he has no self-awareness. The man who helped pay off Iran with that dreadful nuclear deal whined about Soleimani’s death:

Vox’s Ezra Klein knows Solemaini was a bad guy, but ORANGE MAN BAD:


Let’s not forget the moral compass of Hollywood:

The Washington Post mourned:

The hypocrisy is maddening. However, I wonder how many Republicans who did rightfully complain about Obama’s actions on Syria and droning will brush aside Trump’s actions.

Dear “righteous dems”…. The world is watching and Iran will be pleased with your responses. Who has put Americans MORE at risk….Trump or your self-serving political ambitions ?

Time to send Kerry and James Taylor to Iran?

    Also send Obama. Dems response to this will most certainly drive further defections from the Democratic party.

    I think Hanoi Jane is still alive. Maybe she can can visit Tehran and sit and straddle one of those AA guns. History does tend to repeat.

    What’s needed ASAP is an investigation to determine if the Democrat Party has anything to do with the American system of government.

    I have a tentative conclusion, but would like to hear the opinion held by Putin and the mullahs.

      MattMusson in reply to fscarn. | January 3, 2020 at 2:48 pm

      Remember that Soleimani planned the Benghazi attack. And, that Obama stopped Israel from taking him out in 2015. (according to the NYPost.)

Remember Hillary Clinton giggling like a schoolgirl and taking credit for the killing of Qaddafi?

The Democrats ran that indiscreet fool for President.

I’m not listening to them, now.

DEMS are supporting Iranian Terrorism?

    notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital in reply to notamemberofanyorganizedpolicital. | January 3, 2020 at 11:25 am

    Pretty nice wrap up in a nut shell of all this reaction by Ace of Spades……

    “The drone strike was the right uppercut to the Iranian regime and the truly revolting Democrat-Media Complex that actually wished American soldiers would die to politically hurt the President. See: Joy Reid, the walking knockwurst.

    Even now, their absolutely pathetic attempts to claim that all Suleimani’s elimination will do will enrage the Muslim street and plunge us into another war is risible in the extreme. The typical response goes something like “well of course Suleimani has American blood on his hands, but Trump is an evil idiot for doing this because, reasons!” Hitting my Ben Roethelisberger cap lock: It’s funny because Barack Obama spent eight years depleting our stockpile of cruise missiles to take out every damn sand flea from Tunisia to Pakistan and the Media yawned and stumbled over each other to light his spliffs!

    Meanwhile, back here on Planet Earth, real experts are calling the deaths of these two more important than even that of Osama Bin Laden. It might even trigger the long awaited downfall of the 40-year reign of terror in Iran, the wave of bloodshed unleashed on America and the world in that time and the looming threat of the nightmare of a nuclear-armed, Armageddon-hungry mullah-ocracry….”

The despicable Dhimmi-crats never met an “austere religious scholar” of the Islamic variety, that they didn’t venerate and whitewash.

These vile reprobates mourn the killing of a Muslim terrorist murderer with more sympathy and sorrow than they ever evinced upon the deaths of his victims.

The Dhimmis’ moral bankruptcy and loathing of the U.S., and, their perpetually finding common cause with our enemies, plumb new depths of depravity with each passing day.

Seems the Left’s contribution here is several dozen variations of “yeah but”.

Why is this a constitutional issue? The POTUS clearly has authority to act against imminent threats. This wasn’t a declaration of war. It was acting on intelligence when the moment was right. Besides, Congress cannot be trusted to keep in the most minor secrets so if Trump failed to give them a heads up, well, that was good judgment.

Whenever I think TDS levels couldn’t get any higher, I am proven wrong. Thank you President Donald J. Trump for protecting the US Embassy in iraq. But more importantly, thank you PDJT for protecting American lives.

    Thank you Trump for exterminating those evil people. May we do onto them as they would do onto us, FIRST.

If President Trump had done nothing, the DemoncRats would have accused him of being weak; now that he has done something, they accuse him of being a war-monger. A classic Catch-22.

    And if he would have told the House Democrats in advance, both Pelosi and Schiff would have called the Iranians and warned them about it.

    Actually, they were already accusing him of being weak.

    So, in the crazy-causation world of the progressives, the Democrats made Trump do this. Soleimani’s death is on their hands.

      JusticeDelivered in reply to GWB. | January 3, 2020 at 7:00 pm

      Ice cream or ices was probably Soleimani’s last and very brief thought as he was being incinerated was probably about ice. He had been playing with fire for a long time, cremation was an appropriate end.

These people are wimps, cowards, hyper-partisans, and fellow travelers.

How can any idiot say that “Soleimani is responsible for the killing of hundreds of Americans, but it’s wrong to target him”?
If Obama had the guts to pull off this kind of action, these same people would have been kissing his feet.

    People in the Middle East are noting that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard killed a couple thousand Iranians in the recent demonstrations.

The press conference DeBlasio is having right now. “The whole world has changed as of yesterday night. Hide under your beds Terrorists are coming after you. But go about your normal business.”

    “……. the real impact, one can legitimately wager, will be quite different from what you’ve been hearing so far from most of the U.S. and international media.

    Rather than engendering some massive Iranian “retaliation,” as many talking heads have been warning, I believe this strike will throw the Iranian regime back on its heels, as wannabe successors contemplate their careers vaporizing in a U.S. drone strike and Iran’s civilian leaders fret that they have been exposed as emperors without clothes.

    Put simply, the aura of the Iranian regime’s invincibility is over….

    https://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/2020/01/bye-bye-suleymani-kenneth-r-timmerman/

      I agree with this view completely – these MSM know nothings can’t understand that we just wiped out Iran’s Command and Control network for every operation outside their borders. They know we’ve tapped in to their network, and are tracking them and their plans, and now they have to suspect every phone, every communications line, every operative. How do they carry out any kind of coherent response now?

I was basically a Third Party voter- as in none of the above- before the Iraq War #1. Only 18% of Democrat Senators- 18 of 56- voted for the Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 1991. (January 14,1991)

The United Nations Security Council had passed Resolution 678 in November 29,1990, which authorized “all necessary force” if Saddam did not withdraw all his troops from Kuwait by January 15,1991.

That led me to the conclusion that Demos were taking domestic politics to the foreign sphere. For decades the Demos have been shouting for the US to obey the UN. Yet when it came to following Resolution 678, the Democrats decided that UN should be ignored. (I would concur that the UN should not be our decider, but I found it ironic that this is about the only instance I could find where the Demos decided en masse to ignore the UN. If the UN agrees with a Republican President, the Demos apparently decided that the UN should be ignored.)

After that debacle of Democrat decision on foreign policy, I decided I would no longer vote for a Democrat for President.

Interesting that the Democrats NOW inform us that the POTUS needs to have Congressional authorization for targeted killings, when the Obama Administration killed about 1,000 people via drone strikes. Did Obama seek Congerssional authorization for killing Osama Bin Laden?

    “I decided I would no longer vote for a Democrat for President.”

May I suggest that the next time Iran pulls something we should start destroying infrastructure. As to the poor Iranian people, they have been brainwashed by Muslim horsecrap for a rather long time. Just because some would like to get rid of the Mullahs, it doesn’t mean they our friends.

They are trying to build nukes, that must be stopped, regardless of collateral damage.

Remember when the US declared the IRGC, and its subordinate Quds force, as a terrorist organization? Remember when man, many people said that the US would only use this designation to go after financial assets? Well, SURPRISE!!!. I told you that the declaration would allow the US to target Iranian officials, who were involved with the IRGC, physically. Under the declaration, Soleimani was a terrorist. And, as such, under current US doctrine, he was a viable target for elimination. BOOOM chucka-a-lucka.

The POTUS is not required, by law, to notify Congress before he authorizes action against any designated terrorist organization or member of such organization. The POTUS had been very lenient, with regard to Iranian provocation, up to this point. When the Iranian backed militias attacked the US Embassy in Iraq, using Quds directed surrogates, it was decided to send a very strong message to the Iranians. We’ll just have to wait and see how this progresses.

Are we sure this is Soleimani? I’d hate to think we took out Sean Connery by mistake.

To the Dems, Hollywood and NeverTrumpers, we are tempting fate here. Up to now, Iran has been very patient with us. But even the patience of the Religion of Perpetual Outrage has limits. We wouldn’t want to make them angry.

Yep. They are THAT disconnected.

My greatest fear is that this gives the CIA, et al, the opportunity to assassinate Trump and blame it on Iran!

Note one word used either explicitly or implicitly in each of these statements (except the real nuts)

BUT

Paraphrased, each of the thoughtful, considerate, meaningful, top people, gave the same statement.

“Soleimani was a bloody butcher etc…

BUT

We really reserve the right to say “We told you so” if Iran does anything in response (or that we can say was done in response) you evil orange man.”

What the American Left hopes is that the general public has forgotten the fiasco known as the Iranian Hostage Crisis.

For 444 days fifty-two Americans where held hostage while Jimmy Carter and his feckless State department dithered around with negotiations. (November 4, 1979 to January 20, 1981).

What we witnessed a few days ago was another attempt by Iran to embarrass the U.S. But this time the democrats were not in control. Instead of fearful dithering the President took direct action. (side note: middle easterners respect direct action.)

Decisive, proportional and with a clear message. Think about how the last forty years would have been different had Carter has a back bone.

Chris Murphy (D-CT): “One reason we don’t generally assasinate foreign political officials is the belief that such action will get more, not less, Americans killed.”

Such logic must therefore accept some losses as acceptable? Is there some democrat statistical measurement (chart) that tracks American lives lost to an acceptable Democrat loss standard? And when cumulatively the loss numbers in the 600’s – that’s OK as long as it doesn’t exceed %n per month? We wouldn’t want to make the murderer angry – he might start killing even more people.

The mind of liberals is scarier than any horror movie I’ve ever seen. What sniveling cowards they can be.

Is anyone questioning why an Iranian military leader was in Iraq, a US war zone?

After pointing out just what a bad, bad man this dude was, politicians should avoid using the word, “but”.
.
There is no “but”. Only a period.
.
I particularly like how media writers and bloggers sitting in their pj’s in the basements of their parents homes are all Middle East and Iran experts. Many of them were still trying to get to second base with their high school sweethearts when bin Laden was killed. A couple Google searches is all it takes apparently.

Critics seem to forget that there is already a de facto state of war between the USA and Iran. No declaration is needed.

Also that terrorists, like pirates, are hostis humani generis.

    It’s a bit weird. Iran declared war on us 40 years ago. Does a declaration of war have to be dual-sided for it to be in effect (Constitutional separation of powers-wise)? Methinks the WPA neglects this aspect. (Or, they just assumed no one would be stupid enough to actually ignore such a state for four decades.)

      Milhouse in reply to GWB. | January 3, 2020 at 4:29 pm

      No declaration at all is necessary for a state of war to exist. If our forces are in combat, then by definition we are at war, even if neither side declared it. So the courts ruled in the 1790s, and again in the 1860s, and nobody’s ever disputed it.

How much did republicans complain about Obama’s drone attacks? I remember progressive complaints and I remember complaints by Republicans about Syria and the American citizen he ‘droned’ but in general that my recollection is that his drone war was one of the few places the left was more critical then the right. I know it is one his few policies that I supported.

    Kepha H in reply to Giuseppe. | January 3, 2020 at 8:03 pm

    Trump did the right thing in blasting Soleimani; and, apparently, the head of the Iraqi Shi’ite militia that tried to seize our Embassy in Baghdad. Official Iran is screaming bloody murder because this time, we did not roll over when they tried to repeat the 1978-79 Embassy takeover–an act which should’ve justly brought on Iran second visitations of Hueku Khan and Temur-e-Lengk.

    But I will not fault Obama’s taking out Anwar Al-Awlaki, even if I never voted for the O and never will. I teach in a high school. If, God forbid, we were on lockdown due to a shooter in the building, and a police officer had a clear shot at the perp, I’d be glad if the policeman took the perp out. Awlaki was in Yemen planning further attacks on the USA.

    But you’re right to note Democrat hypocrisy.

I love it when the left shows us who they really are. Thousands of Muslim deaths were okay because they were happening “over there”. The killing and maiming of American soldiers was an acceptable loss. Cries of sudden destabilization of the region are laughable because it was Soleimani’s goal to destabilize the region. Now they’re actually apologizing to Iran for taking out his terror chief. I even saw comparisons to the assassination of Archduke Ferdinand, cementing the complete ignorance and/or utter stupidity of those on the left. And these are the people who think they should govern the rest of us?

    I sincerely hope Rosie McGowan moves to Iran to openly and outspokenly fight for women’s rights, refuse to wear a chadoor, and champion Iran’s LGBTQ’s.

Think Dems are mad now see what happens if Pats win tomorrow.

“The hypocrisy is maddening. However, I wonder how many Republicans who did rightfully complain about Obama’s actions on Syria and droning will brush aside Trump’s actions.”

Mary, please. There is no equating one with the other. Trump was defending the attack of an embassy. Embassy attacks are extremely rare for a reason. You absolutely do NOT let them pass without retaliation. In Syria, it wasn’t clear whose side we were on. For all appearances, we were protecting the Russians. We were certainly defending their oil. A muddled mess.

    I was going to make the same point Phil.

    I read that line and immediately knew the author of the article.

    Mary doesn’t like President Trump, and that’s why we always get that apologetic writing. Apology that what is written supports Trump.

    There is no comparison. None. Zero. Nada.

We need to encourage these America-hating, American-hating idiots to talk early and often.

thalesofmiletus | January 3, 2020 at 3:34 pm

Foreign policy establishment hardest hit.

Susan Rice and Samantha Power drafted the US resolution to the UN to attack Libya – implicit within the resolution that Qadaffi be killed by whatever means necessary.

Her new book
book: the education of an idealist
chapter: all necessary measures.
page 301-303

So if Trump had gotten word that the General was about to start a big anti-American campaign resulting in many American and Iraqi deaths, he should have asked the Trump-hating Dems if it was ok? With anti-Americans like Talib, Omar, AOC, Sanders, Warren and Pelosi is there anyone who thinks they would have approved?

According to the WAPO, Mr Qassem Soleimani was Iran’s most revered military leader…!

He was also lead tenor with the Iranian Men’s Glee Club and was about to release a new album of nothing but love ballads….!

He enjoyed long walks on the beach…

He often helped little old ladies across the street…

He was a former boy scout…

He was voted “Best Legs” 2015….!

We should stop with the “TDS” nonsense, and call it what it is: corruption.

The likes of pelosi, biden, kerry, obama etc have been getting HUGE kickbacks from US foreign aid. In obama’s case, he just got a 65 million dollar kickback from a book publisher he bribed while – ugh – president.

https://www.publishersweekly.com/pw/by-topic/industry-news/book-deals/article/72949-the-obamas-book-deals-spark-65-million-mystery.html

The media talking heads have been coming and going into government jobs and ridiculous publishing deals. Hollywood has become a blacklist environment (GOT THAT?) so actors have to tow the line. The big ones don’t, but the marginal ones (tom arnold, rosanne arquette, etc.) become foghorns for the left in the hope of getting work.

In other words, we’re talking about a TOTAL cycle of corruption. In other words, the talking heads of hollywood are effectively on fascist iran’s payroll, as are the rest of the corrupt idiots in our colleges and media.

FOLLOW THE MONEY: the democrat cycle of corruption is complete.

Thanks, mccain, boehner, romey, flake and the rest of you rats: for nothing.

But a BIG thank you to PDJT for rescuing our nation from the abyss.

This whole scheme to discredit Trump because he killed a nasty enemy ON THE BATTLEFIELD, not by assassination! The man was plotting to kill Iraqis and Americans! WTF is wrong with these people! Their position is that we should NEVER kill any of the bad guys because of possible retaliation. I think the American voters will NOT agree with them on this.

As Milhous observes, and I have long suspected, no reciprocal declaration is needed on our part for Iran to meet the definition of enemy per Article III. The treason clause of the Constitution.

Iran is a declared enemy of the United States, dems are adhering to it, giving it aid and comfort.

What would the lamestream media say if Trump had drones strike all those robocallers to your cell phone

Sounds like Rose McGowan is applying for asylum in Iran. Hey Rosey. You won’t be missed.
