what difference does it make?
Let’s start today by borrowing this now famous phrase.
Throughout the weekend, the Sunday Shows and this AM the media and those opposing the President are asking where’s the proof that Solemani was about to act? Where’s the evidence?
Well, here’s my question. What difference does it make?
The man was charged as a terrorist by the Obama, Bush and Trump administrations. He was charged as a terrorist by the U.N. and the EU.
He had the deaths of over six hundred and the maiming of thousands on his hands. He had just led the attack on the U.S. Embassy in Baghdad. He was back in Iraq to meet militants to visit and create more chaos.
Why do I need to know exactly what he planned in the next 24 or 48 hours? Why do I need to know who exactly who he was going to kill and injure this time? I know the track record and that is all I need to know. I don’t need to know what he is going to do because I know what he has done. My only question is why did it take so long?
On a second front the MSM asked this question about proof over and over. The anti President Democrats asked it too. There was one question they didn’t ask that I wanted to answer. It was this:
When the attack on Soleimani happened, you the media, and those quick to criticize the action called this WWIII. You were sure this was it and the President was off his rocker. Well, the Iranians certainly didn’t retaliate as you thought. In fact their people are in the streets protesting against them. Why were you wrong?
Not one show asked any single person why they were wrong. They only concentrated on where’s the proof he was going to act? What a sham.
The evidence, by the way, to use another now famous phrase is “in clear sight.” Six hundred dead bodies, thousand maimed and without limbs and a burning embassy. Unlike Schiff’s clear sight evidence this one is.
So now we move on to more hysteria and weeks of impeachment coverage. The MSM will play it up big, but I have a feeling most Americans are tired of it. If the House decides to move the articles tomorrow then expect the trial to begin next week.
I watched the (almost) interview of Nancy Pelosi on This Week yesterday and it fell so short. First, she demanding witnesses and George never pushed back that she led this and rushed it through without the same witnesses she wants the senate to call. Hypocrisy at its finest.
The end of that interview was disturbing. With a smirk and smile she said this “President will be impeached forever.” It was clear she was proud of the stain on his presidency. It was actually disturbing and gave one the impression that this is what she is most proud of. If she put this country through all this for that she should be impeached.
The next democratic debate is tomorrow night. Tom Steyer, with a strong showing capturing 12% of the vote in a Nevada poll and 15% in a South Carolina. one, has now qualified. It was a result of his heavy media spending and he makes six that will be on stage tomorrow.
The Iowa Caucus is three weeks from tonight. What will happen with the senators sitting in for the impeachment trial will be interesting. With four front runners, two are senators (Sanders and Warren). If they can’t campaign like Joe Biden and Mayor Pete that could hurt them. Nancy’s timing is not ideal here.
President Trump got a double-dose of good news from the border late last week. First, the latest numbers showed illegal immigration continued to drop, as his efforts with Mexico are working. (Remember the tariffs he threatened there?)
Second, a federal appeals court ruling allowed him to divert $3.6 billion in Pentagon money toward building his wall. This 5th U.S. Circuit Court ruling reverses a lower judge’s injunction.
By now you know that Iran has accepted responsibility for shooting down that Ukraine airliner. They released this statement:
“Gen. Amir Ali Hajizadeh, the head of the Guard’s aerospace division, said his unit accepts ‘full responsibility’ for the shootdown. In an address broadcast by state TV, he said that when he learned about the downing of the plane, ‘I wished I was dead.’ “
Something tells me he might get his wish soon.
HAVE A GREAT DAY
