The Morning Report - 1/8/20


Good morning kids. Midweek and things are breaking all over the place, mostly in and around Iran and about half of them news items with the other half missile parts as well as Iranian infrastructure. The Iranians launched missiles late yesterday at US military targets in Iraq, in retaliation for our taking out of their top terrorist. The President and Pentagon are reporting no American deaths or injuries, but the President is going to make an announcement some time today about the situation.

Ignoring the political ramifications at home for a moment, the fact of the matter is we have been in a state of war with Iran since the mullahs seized our embassy in 1979. Every administration since then, with the possible exception of Ronald Reagan, chose to ignore that fact in spite of the fact that Iran has backed up their almost hourly chants of "death to America" with rivers of American blood as well as other innocent people all over the world since then. That includes its own citizenry who they used as cannon fodder in the Iran-Iraq War, as well as everyday repression of the totalitarian sharia variety; most recently manifesting itself in the deaths of at least a thousand unarmed protesters in the past few months and maybe hundreds more in the years since the 2009 mass protests. You remember, the protests during the so-called "Arab spring" where the Obama administration chose to side with the mullahs over the people. Not coincidentally, Ted Cruz pointed out, the missiles that rained down on us yesterday were bought and paid for by the pallets of cash that Barack Obama delivered to the mullahs in the wake of that disastrous nuclear deal sell-out.

The mistake that the Globalist Deep State fools in Foggy Bottom, Turtle Bay and the Ivy League - which mirrors that of the Left in general - is their policies and positions are based on fictions, fantasies and falsehoods generated inside their pinheads which can then only exist inside a faculty lounge. Time and time again, when applied in the real world, disaster ensues. John Lennon's Imagine is insipid, G-dless tripe, not the basis of sane foreign policy. On the other hand, the Iranian regime consists of leadership that views Armageddon as a sound and attainable "foreign policy" goal, mostly because they live in their own bizzaro 7th Century fantasy world that desires the subjugation of the world under Islam or its destruction via the 12th Imam who will usher in Paradise on Earth under a planet-sized burqa of "cobalt thorium G" if need be. But I digress.

The Iranian regime for sure is on the ropes, internally and externally, otherwise they would not be reacting as they are now. They are praying that the President makes a mistake that leads to his ouster next November and that another insane, anti-American Democrat genuflecter-in-chief is elected who will resuscitate them and the ability to nuke up. What they do not understand, as well as the Democrat-Media Complex here at home, is that this President still holds all the cards. There are things he can do to collapse the regime without a single American GI boot setting foot inside Iran proper. At least not a mass invasion a la Gulf Wars One and Two.

Unfortunately that still leaves the Democrat Party, which is now openly an anti-American insurrectionist entity (we'll leave that for another time, as I only have so much time and pixels) set to act on behalf of our enemy by enacting crazy new restrictions under the guise of the Constitution. Funny how they can both demean and revere that document at will. As I said, the President has to thread this needle very carefully. Boots on the ground or even a seeming escalation via air strikes, no matter how pinpoint or selective, could alienate a base who elected him on, among other things, a platform of not starting another endless, pointless, winless Middle Eastern democracy project. I don't think he will, and as he has done so brilliantly for three years now, will explain exactly what he is doing plainly and honestly.

The X factor in all of this is the Iranian regime itself. We can only react to what their next move is going to be. Again, it's all in what that reaction is going to be. If the President plays his cards right, I think we are in a position to see the 40-year reign of terror and all the pain and misery inflicted upon us and the world - as well as the nightmare scenario of a nuclear-armed Dark Age death cult - finally brought to an end, perhaps as early as this summer.

Prayers up for our commander-in-chief, our armed forces and all of us.
