Morning Greatness: Media, Democrats Continue to Cover for Iran’s Terror Regime

Good Friday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president meets with the Secretary of State

Democrats continue strategy of aiding and abetting the terror regime of Iran

Iran could not pay for better cover and crisis communication services than what they are getting from the Democrats and the media. If Iran thought they could use the U.S. media and Democrats to obstruct and interfere with Trump’s Iran strategy, they were right on the money. Yesterday, the Democrat-controlled House voted on a meaningless measure designed to limit Trump’s war powers and generate some anti-Trump propaganda for the news jesters. It’s non-binding so really just a cosmetic gesture. As we all know, nothing is more of a deterrent to an enemy than knowing your opponent is hamstrung to respond to your murderous provocations. The Democrats are here for that.

Obama’s DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson isn’t playing along. Johnson told Fox News yesterday, “What I have said is that under existing [Justice Department] Office of Legal Counsel [OLC] opinions on the president’s constitutional authority to engage the armed forces without a congressional authorization, if you read those opinions, he had ample constitutional authority to take out General Soleimani, if you regard that as an isolated strike,” Johnson said. “What these OLC opinions say is that the president can take lethal force so long as it’s short of war if it’s in the important national interest. And this and this operation was.”

Trump knows it’s risky to tell the Democrats anything because they only care about regaining power and not the national interest, they would absolutely risk American lives in order to hurt Trump. In any case, it’s impossible to respond in time-sensitive conditions by convening a bunch of congressional hyenas to debate a military action. That’s why the executive has the power to make these calls. One part of this virtue signalling that is especially hard to swallow is all the pearl-clutching and slobbering about going to Congress to declare war. We didn’t hear a squeak about war powers when Obama was dragging the U.S. and droning all over his favorite places in the Middle East.

Whoops: Iran probably shot down the Ukraine’s plane in Iran

Ukraine has had a rough go of it lately. Before I forget, I saw a great documentary a few weeks ago called “Ukraine on Fire” and I highly recommend it. Yes, it’s an Oliver Stone product but it was made before the Democrats crafted a narrative sanitized Ukraine coverage so some of the sacred cows aren’t so sacred in the documentary. It’s available on Amazon Prime.

Back to the plane that crashed was shot down in Iran. Canada’s metrosexual, black face enthusiast prime minister Justin Trudeau held a press conference yesterday about the plane “accident” that killed 63 Canadians and said Ukraine International Airlines Flight 752 was shot down by a surface-to-air-missile. He said this information came from “multiple sources, including our allies and our own intelligence.”

Who shot the plane down? DONALD JOHN TRUMP, of course. Garbage person Rep. Jackie Speier (D-umbass) told CNN “If what is being projected is true, this is yet another example of collateral damage from the actions that have been taken in a provocative way by the president of the United States.” She was not the only one to blame Trump. Mayor Pete Butthead tweeted out “Innocent civilians are now dead because they were caught in the middle of an unnecessary and unwanted military tit for tat.”

It’s as if the Iranian have no agency at all, Trump made them do it. Just like Trump made the thugs assaulting his supporters use violence. Why are the Democrats so desperate to protect Iran and Obama’s legacy? I guess I answered my own questions. Meanwhile, Iran has invited Boeing to help with the crash investigation after playing coy and claiming the black boxes from the crash were damaged.

Soleimani, a candle in the wind

Despite expecting the worse from the Left and the media, I continue to have my expectations exceeded. MSNBC show pony Chris Matthews likened bloody general Soleimani, who has the blood of 600+ Americans on his hands, to Elvis and Princess Diana. “You know, when some people die, you don’t know what the impact is going to be,” Matthews began telling a panel. “When Princess Diana died, for example, there was a huge emotional outpouring, Elvis Presley in our culture. It turns out that this general [President Trump] killed was a beloved hero of the Iranian people.”

Right on Chris, because all those people in the streets were there of their own free will, expressing their grief and sadness. Is he really this dumb? Nevermind.
