The Pig-Ignorance of Tim Kaine & The Pro-Iran Left

“Soleimani was a despicable killer, but this drastic escalation of hostilities, waging a military attack on Iraqi soil over the objections of that country and without congressional authorization, will increase the threat to American troops, diplomats, and families in the region,” US Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA), said in a tweet.

This is the kind of opportunistic pig-ignorance that passes for statesmanship today in the Progressive wing of the Democrat Party; opportunistic because his statement is politically motivated, ignorant because it dismisses the reality on the ground in the Iranian-influenced Middle East.

Kaine, the failed vice-presidential candidate on Hillary Clinton’s ticket, has a history of making politically opportunistic statements for their shock and pander value including insisting that President Trump wanted every nation to have nuclear weapons. He is on record as saying, “We trust Hillary Clinton, my wife and I, and we trust her with the most important thing in our life.” That says quite a bit when you take into consideration Clinton’s trustworthiness.

So, when we look at Kaine’s catalyst (or any of the usual suspect Democrat obstructionists) for introducing legislation that would require the military’s Commander in Chief to get authorization from Congress for any military measure taken against Iran’s terrorist regime it must be seen as a move that targets the President politically, not ethically or procedurally, and puts the immediate well-being of our military personnel in-theater in jeopardy without support.

Soleimani’s existence was the existence of a physical threat to not only US military and civilian personnel in the Middle East, but Americans and Westerners everywhere. His chief terror organization – Hezbollah – was not pigeonholed to formal nation-state acts of war; it operates in the deathly shadows where terrorists lurk. They operate across the Middle East in cities as well as battlefields. They operate in Europe. They operate in Asia, South America, Central America, and right here in the United States.

This understood, how incredibly ignorant is Kaine’s statement that actions like taking out Soleimani will “increase the threat to American troops, diplomats, and families,” that threat is a constant. The elimination of Soleimani represents the removal of what the sycophantic Left in the US is calling the “mastermind” of Iranian military and terrorist operations. That makes American troops, diplomats, and families safer, not placed in more danger.

As for Iraqi “sovereignty.” There is none. The fact that anyone in Baghdad is mourning Soleimani’s death means that the Iraqi people have been subjugated to their historical enemy, Iran. The US presence in Iraq is meant to safeguard a government for the Iraqi people, not for the political elites who see opportunity in aligning with the terrorist regime in Tehran.

Therefore, there was no “attack on Iraqi soil,” but there was an attack that killed a bloodthirsty international terrorist in Iranian occupied Iraq.

It would serve the political opportunists of the Progressive Left well to stop playing games with the Iran issue. If the US is made to play the Left’s political game of “stall, politicize, and slow-walk” when military action is needed – and especially with Iran being nuclear-capable (and we all know they are) – should a massive loss of life occurs at Iran’s hand because we couldn’t respond in a timely and effective manner…well, let’s just say that Democrats will be cast into a hundred years of political darkness for the blood on their banner, if, in fact, the party survives at all.

Best for the political Left, as they did in the aftermath of 9/11, to shut up, sit down, and not draw attention to their terrorist sympathies.

  1. 18 Years after 9/11:
    * You teach Islam in your public schools, * You allow Sharia Law in your cities, * You had a president who promoted Islam, * You welcome my followers as “refugees”, * You bow to their demands for you to change. * My followers wage Jihad inside America, * You elect my followers to your Congress, * Democrats defend those who support me, * You are banned from “offending” my followers, * You are banned from criticizing my ideology.* With the help of your Democrat Party, I WON!!! – Osama bin Laden
    Islam was banned from the United States in 1952. But the politically correct left doesn’t want us to know this because they don’t respect or uphold United States Law.
    The Immigration and Nationality Act passed June 27, 1952 revised the laws relating to immigration, naturalization, and nationality of the United States. That Act, which became Public Law 414, established both the law and the intent of Congress regarding the immigration of Aliens to the US and remains in effect today.
    Among the many issues it covers, one in particular, found in Chapter 2 Section 212, is the prohibition of entry to the US if the Alien belongs to an organization seeking to overthrow the government of the United States by “force, violence, or other unconstitutional means.”

    This by its very definition, rules out Islamic Immigration to the United States but this law is being ignored by the leftists. Islamic Immigration to the United States would be prohibited under this law because the Koran, Sharia Law, and the Hadith all require complete submission to Islam, which is antithetical to the US Government and the Constitution and to the Republic. All Muslims who attest that the Koran is their life’s guiding principle subscribe to submission to Islam and its form of government .
    Now the Politically Correct left would say Islamists cannot be prohibited from entering the US because Islam is a religion.

    HOWEVER on November 18, 1990 the 101st congress QUIETLY repealed the McCarren Warner Act forbidding “Muslims” from holding office; members of congress supporting this repeal were Dick Cheney, John McCain, Joe Biden, Al Gore, John Kerry, Mitch McConnell, Chuck Schumer, and Nancy Pelosi to name a few!
    So we now have a few Muslims voted into congress. Due to their faith, they refuse to put their hand on the Bible and swear to uphold our constitution. We are being destroyed from within our own nation. The Trojan Horse has made it into our government!
    Islam is not a religion. It is a governing doctrine that not only dictates religious beliefs, but also social behavior that includes laws, penalties and punishments, not by God, but by people if the laws are not obeyed. Islam is a form of government, not a religion. It does not belong here. By their own admission and the verses in the Quran, Islam’s goal is to dominate any land in which they enter and to kill and rape anyone who does not submit to their beliefs! That alone, makes Islam an enemy of the state and constitution. It set’s Islam above all other laws and does away with all constitutional rights afforded by the constitution!
    Weather it is a religion is immaterial because the law states that Aliens who are affiliated with any “organization” that advocates the overthrow of our government are prohibited. As previously stated Islam, Sharia and the Hadith ALL call for COMPLETE SUBMISSION and for no allegiance to anything else.
    According to Sharia law, Muslim men are allowed to practice polygamy. According to the Quran, a man may have up to four legal wives at any one time. (Muhammad had thirteen wives,) The husband is required to treat all wives equally. Let the beatings and mutilations begin! Why ANY Muslim woman here in the US would agree to live under Sharia Law is the mystery of the ages!!!.
    Everyone should be aware that Islam does not allow for abortions so each of these wives has an average of 8 children. Doing the math, within twenty years there will be enough Muslim voters in the U.S. to elect the President. Islam is not a religion Islam is a CULT!!!
    It is my belief that EVERYONE in the U.S. should be required to read this, however, unless each one of us passes this along the ACLU will not allow for this to occur let alone become publicized. I have done my part to pass this information on, will you forward this along, or will you drop the ball?

    Now we have a government that has completely stop listening to the taxpayers, the people who pay their salaries. Demorrhoids have deteriorated so far as to have an Anti-Semitic Muslim woman threatening the Jewish people and the LIEberal Democrats refuse to censure or impeach her. They refuse to protect our borders. That refuses to honor their oaths of office. The Democrats are now the enemy of the people!!!

  2. The US Embassy is US sovereign ground. It was attacked and defended. Not a declaration of war.
    President Trump has now done what Obama was incapable of doing — killing two of the world’s most treacherous terrorists: Soleimani and Baghdadi. So far, every Democrat running for President has condemned the president for taking out Soleimani after the Quds mass killer masterminded the attack on the American embassy in Iraq. The Iranian regime killed American soldiers and the party of Benghazi, Carter and Obama, and the Democrat leadership trash President Trump for dealing with these terrorists. No, the president is not provoking war, the Iranian regime has committed numerous acts of war. No, the president is not escalating tensions, the Iranian regime is striking out in all directions against numerous countries. Imagine this terrorist regime with nuclear missiles. Obama gave them billions. And the Democrats want you to turn on our president. I predict a political backlash against the Democrats by the American people.

  3. Democrats are SCUM. There can be no bipartisanship, no coming together, no conciliatory act towards SCUM. NOW is the time to accept NEW RULES. Time to make up dirt on them just like they made up dirt on Justice Kavanaugh. Time to ruin their lives just like they ruined the lives of Manafort, Kelly, Page and Papadopoulos. Time to destroy democrat SCUM in the same ways they’ve tried to destroy President Trump. New rules for democrat SCUM!

  4. You should never apologize for making truthful statements. The DemonRATS sided with Soliemani over President Donald Trump. Sure they talked about Soliemani being a bad man, but follwed it up with a BUT and then went on to attack Trump.

    The problem is Republicans preface what they say about DemonRATS with “my friends” on the other side of the aisle or “my colleagues ” on the other side of the aisle. They want to “work ” with the other side, instead of wanting to defeat them. DemonRATS and their policies are detrimental to the citizens of this country.

    The one DemonRAT mentioned in the article called Rep. Doug Collins working for Putin i.e. a Russian asset/spy. I do not think that DemonRAT will apokogize, but if he did it would be insincere.

    I know Collins sits on committees where DemonRATS have been attacking and resisting President Trump. Hussein Obama and members of his DemonRAT Regime attempted a coup against the President. They are not friends of the President.

    These DemonRATS are ignorant, lying anti-Trump leftist un-Americans who are part of the RESISTANCE hurting America and its citizens when they leak President Trump’s phone calls and have called for his impeachment since the day after he won the 2016 presidential election. By doing those things makes it difficult for the President to conduct foreign policy, because Leaders of other countries will be afraid and not want to talk to the President. With the DemonRATS pursuit of impeachment make countries like China difficult to negotiate with them, because they will wait it out to see if Trump remains President or if he will be replaced by a pandering feckless President like Hussein Obama.

    Hopefully, Barr and Durham will soon be slapping cuffs on all those involved in the coup against the President, which is a TREASONOUS act. They need to held accountable for their TREASONOUS actions. TRAITORS used to be hanged or shot for TREASON in this country.

    These DemonRATS maybe friends of Rep. Collins, but they are not friends of the American citizens. As I said, DemonRATS and their policies are detrimental to the citizens of this country and they need to be defeated.
