The Morning Report - 1/15/20

Good morning kids. Midweek and we'll lead today with the continued unrest in Iran that may finally, actually topple the mullahs as well as severely damage their close allies over here in the Democrat-Media Complex. The disgusting knee-jerk rush to defend the terror mastermind of the world's leading terrorist state - all because President Trump did what should have been done years ago in taking him out - played out in two stark incidents. First, during Monday's tedious, frivolous and nakedly political session of the House Foreign Relations Committee, with execrable Democrat stooge and self-gassing Jew Eliot Engel wielding he gavel, tried to lead a panel of pinhead globalist foreign policy experts of the Bush and Obama variety in a Greek chorus of Trump bashing for his actions. At that point, Rep Brian Mast, himself wounded in Afghanistan by an IED 10 years ago, had had enough.

"...If you walk out this hallway, and you take a right and a right and another right, you're going to come to several beautiful walls that have the names of our fallen service members from the War on Terror," Mast began. "And I would ask, can any of you provide me with one name on that wall that doesn't justify killing Soleimani?"

The congressman noted that he still had two minutes and thirty seconds of time left and would "be more than happy" to sit there and wait for an answer.

"Somebody provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify his killing," he said...

The Congressman got nothing but dead silence in what has got to be one of the greatest mic-drop moments of all time. That said, about the only thing you could hear was the rivulets of flop sweat seeping out of Engel's pores from beneath his hideous comb-over, until the lout opened his cake-hole in a desperate attempt staunch the rhetorical hemorrhaging. For his troubles he got a righteous pimp-slapping in return.

"...I'm continuing Mr. Chairman," Mast replied. "I've got two minutes remaining. I will sit here and wait for somebody to provide me with a name on that wall that does not justify the killing of Soleimani." The Florida Republican sat back again and waited while the panel sat in uncomfortable silence.

After about eight more seconds, Engel said, "thank you Mr. Mast, I think you made your point," and he tried to move on to the next congressman.

"Mr. Chairman I've not yielded back my time and I still have a minute and 45 seconds," Mast shot back.

When Engel complained that Mast was disrupting the hearing, the congressman insisted, "I have not yielded back my time!"

He continued, "I have a minute and 45 seconds remaining in which I would like somebody to provide me with a name of somebody on our wall who does not..."

Engel interrupted Mast to tell him that he was "out of order."

"I will not yield back my time," Mast repeated.

"You are out of order," Engel said again.

Another Republican then offered to yield a minute of his time to Mast.

"Thank you my colleague," said Mast. "I appreciate it."

He then sat back in silence, still waiting for an answer from the panel, which offered none.

After about a minute and a half of silence, Mast noted that there was no response to his question. "Not one name offered that would not justify the killing of Soleimani," he concluded.

Apologies to Debra Heine at American Greatness for excerpting about 85% of her article, although you can click the link and watch a video of the exchange to get the full effect and contrast between character, courage and truth and malignant, self-serving lies.

But wait, there's more! The cherry on top of Engel's idiotic double-talk and pretzel logic came yesterday when he and his party voted down a resolution supporting the Iranian people protesting the mullahs as well as condemning the latter for shooting down a Ukrainian airliner, killing 176 people. That is madness. Period, full stop.

But the madness goes beyond just raw hatred for President Trump. It is a manifestation of the mother's milk of America-hatred that is now coursing through main arteries of the entire Democrat Party, to one extent or another. All you have to do is watch the first in no doubt will be a series of undercover videos by journalists-extraordinaire James O'Keefe and his colleagues at Project Veritas, wherein a key staff member for Democrat presidential candidate Bernie Sanders boasts, threatens and promises that cities will burn if his candidate is denied the nomination. He also promises that along with the 63 million untermenschen who voted for Trump and the millions more who support him, the gulags and mass graves will be filled with the bodies of the so-called "moderate" Democrats who cannot or will not get with the program of totalitarian Marxist-Leninism they are itching to implement if, GOD-FORBID they ever attain power. That is something that Mr. Engel, if he had any self-awareness at all, would be strongly advised to consider. But, he doesn't. And so it goes.
