The news of the weekend changed late Saturday night when the President tweeted that “something big just happened”. From that tweet to the sweet news that Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi had been hunted down and sent on his way to meet his maker, it was the news of the day.
We applaud and salute those who planned the operation, the intelligence agencies that dedicated their lives to finding him, and the great military operators whose bravery, skill and coverage must be treasured by us all.
The world is a better place this morning with Baghdadi gone, and though he will be replaced, a message has been sent again, America will not forget and hunt you down.
The MSM was caught by surprise and had to revise their planned Sunday news show focus on impeachment. What made it worse for them is the President went on TV literally at the same time their Sunday news shows were to start. They were ready for impeachment and got Baghdadi.
Nancy Pelosi had this to say: “The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region.”
Two things on this:
First the Russians were not informed about what we were doing. They were informed we were flying helicopters over their troops to avoid conflict and people getting killed. To tell people what you did is misleading and just shows your obsession with the President and Russia.
Second you know why the President didn’t tell you? For the same reasons you are doing things in secrecy right now to impeach him. Payback is tough isn’t it?
Next the headline in the Washington Post was incredibly ridiculous. If you didn’t see it, this is what it said:
“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, austere religious scholar at helm of Islamic State, dies at 48″.
To call this brutal murderer an “austere religious scholar” is beyond words. This was a sick, depraved person who burned people in cages, had heads cut off and brutalized so many. Religious scholar?
The military operation was named for Kayla Mueller. She was a humanitarian aid worker who the terrorist leader captured and tortured in every way possible until her death in 2015.
Here’s what her Mom said “I still say Kayla should be here, and if Obama had been as decisive as President Trump, maybe she would have been.” Doubt you’ll see her on the MSM.
some additional News
Adam Schiff was on a morning news show yesterday and said that A.G. Barr is “weaponizing the investigation”. I had to stop and make sure I heard that right. Barr is being aggressive Adam? Let me ask a question:
We had three years and close to $50 million spent on a Russia Collusion investigation that said there was none. So now we have the A.G. appoint a Special Investigator to see how that rumor and charge came about .That’s weaponizing? Three years of chaos, division and false charges and we shouldn’t know how it began? I think you weaponized the false charges and we want to know how it started.
We keep asking why can’t we pass USMCA since it is a good deal for America and will create 180,000 jobs? Do you know that Mexico and Canada are our number two and three trading partners? Combined they are double China. Yet congress can’t pass this bill that the other two have already approved and is good for America? The Democratic law makers when questioned say this is a “priority” for Nancy Pelosi.
So I ask you this. You see impeachment and how that is moving? Which do you think is Nancy’s priority? The USMCA is languishing with her for a year. That’s priority?
Democratic Senator Katie Hill announced she is resigning yesterday. If you followed that story she was caught up in a sexual relationship story with a staffer, and someone (presumably her ex husband) released photo’s. She had won one of those Trump district seats last year. It will be up for grabs in 2020.
What’s most interesting about the story is this. It wasn’t until last year that the House changed its rules to prohibit relationships between members and their staffs. Think about that. They did it address male lawmakers. Isn’t it ironic the first one to fall afoul of the rule is a woman, and a bisexual woman, at that.
Long time Congressman John Conyers passed away over the weekend too. He co-founded the Congressional Black Caucus in 1969 and sponsored a bill to establish the Martin Luther King Jr. Day holiday. He is one of only a handful of people to serve in Congress for at least 50 years. I watched MSM coverage and they lauded his work as a civil rights person and his long time service, as they should have. Know what I didn’t see? Why he left a few years ago. Sexual harassment charges. That’s part of the record folks.
Finally today the European Union extended yet again Britains exit from it to Jan. 31. It’s time for Parliament to move on. The people voted.
