The Morning Report - 1/14/20

iranrevol.jpg

Good morning kids. Tuesday and the big story remains the critical situation in Iran, where citizens are pouring into the streets in numbers not seen since the 2009 protests that Obama helped crush and 40 years ago when the Shah's government was overthrown. The Trump administration's sanctions regime, as well as the collapse of the oil market which is the regime's sole source of income certainly fueled much of the unrest, but it struck me as odd that the shoot down of a Ukrainian airliner and then subsequent attempt to cover it up tossed a gasoline tanker onto long-smoldering embers. But as Lloyd Billingsley reports, there's more to the story. It turns out that several passengers on board, Canadian citizens of Iranian descent, were anti-regime activists/dissidents. The other angle to the story is the media and Canadian government officials' attempts to cover it all up. Talk about your collusion. All this does is just underscore the Democrat-Left-Media Complex's desperation to tar and feather Trump as an insane warmonger at the expense of the truth and a real chance for liberation of the Iranian people after 40 years of brutal repression. Speaking of Canada, I wonder if this Michael McCain stooge of Maple Leaf Foods has any idea about any of this. Meh, of course he doesn't.

Case in point is execrable shit-stain Gerry Connolly who poo-pooed the President's vocal standing with the protesters. Aside from just knee-jerk stupidity of desperately wanting to preserve the Obama legacy of aiding and abetting anyone or anything that is anti-American, I wonder what other connections Connolly has to the regime. A lot of people got the rug pulled out from them when Trump nixed that JCPOA sellout. Billions in cash delivered on pallets have a funny way of being returned to the USA in envelopes to DC or to bank accounts in the Cayman Islands (see also the recurring annual chancer sore of the $850 billion "stimulus" which only serves to stimulate Democrat graft).

In any case, Kevin McCarthy has introduced a resolution to officially declare support of the Iranian people. For the Democrats to vote against this, which I fully expect them to do, would be so absolutely and utterly tone deaf and irresponsible. But, they only have themselves to blame for declaring Trump worse than cancer and thereby forced into opposing anything he does no matter what. Then again, given the Democrats' anti-American DNA, they'd oppose the resolution no matter who was in office. Certainly no Democrat president would ever support a bill like this. Hell, Obama aided and abetted the terrorists from day one of his Reign of Error and set the entire region on fire.

Meanwhile as scum like Ben Rhodes and John Kerry spout lies about the President as well as the jug-eared Hawaiian stoner who trashed the nation, and homosexual presidential candidate Mayor Pete Puffer is uncharacteristically silent on Iran's hanging gay people from construction cranes or tossing them off buildings, high profile citizens in country are displaying immense bravery, vocally denouncing the regime, including Iran's only female Olympic medalist who has defected. This while the IRGC and police forces are far from defeated, still packing them in to Evin Prison and still shooting protesters dead in the street.

In the face of all of this, my contempt for the Democrats and Leftists is beyond description. The situation remains fluid, and with the regime perhaps on the verge of collapse, they may yet lash out; a sobering thought considering they view Armageddon as a rational foreign policy. But this President has played and continues to play the situation perfectly, no matter what the press and others might say to the contrary. Prayers up for him and for the Iranian people.
