Listening to the mainstream news media, the propaganda unit of the Democrat Party, one would believe the lawful death of terrorist Qasem Soleimani on the Iraqi battlefield was tantamount to the unlawful assassination of foreign official outside the boundaries of the United States.

Of course, the Democrats are rarely concerned with the facts, especially those explained by a Harvard lawyer such as the Chair of the rogue House Intelligence Committee Representative Adam Schiff (D-CA).

Schiff wants to hold hearings – perhaps in his subterranean secret star chamber – to discover as to whether the “intelligence dictated that Soleimani’s killing” was needed to stop an “imminent” threat. Schiff declares, “I don’t think the intelligence was of the kind of character that would lead to a uniform recommendation that Soleimani should be killed. I think that was an impulsive judgment made by the president.”

Of course, there would be no uniform agreement on any matter given the number of anti-Trump Obama holdovers in positions within the intelligence community and White House staff. The House of Representatives does not dictate nor oversee military action against a known enemy combatant. As for a imminent threat, consider the thousands of U.S. soldiers killed by Soleimani’s IEDs and proxy fighters. That alone should condemn him to an everlasting hell.

The facts are simple:

There is no existing Federal law that criminalizes the assassination of a foreign official outside the boundaries of the United States. And the closest guidance, in the absence of such a law, is provided by Executive Orders, which are legally viewed as “directives” and not laws.

Section 2.11 of Executive Order 12333 which states, “Prohibition on Assassination. No person employed by or acting on behalf of the United States Government shall engage in, or conspire to engage in, assassination.”

The executive order was created to reform the intelligence agencies and does not affect military operations involving foreign enemy combatants.

A perspective on Iran and the Democrat Party…

Today, I am amazed that many Americans actually believe that the Iran situation has gotten dramatically better after Iran's feeble response to the death of their terrorist-in-chief, Major General Qasem Soleimani, who commanded the Quds Force branch of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps. 

Let us consider the fact that Iran is experiencing serious domestic issues, from a collapsing economy to a dissatisfied and growing segment of the educated population that sees a better quality of life outside of the religious fervor of the corrupt Iranian Mullahs.

Let us consider that the alleged feeble retaliatory response was simply a head-fake, a meaningless gesture that provides some measure of cover to Iran's need to delay any real, and costly, reaction to America until they achieve the status of a nuclear power.

Iran's Foreign Minister Mohammed Javad Zarif tweeted that Iran was finished fighting and was not actively pursuing any kind of escalation to the conflict.

"Iran took & concluded proportionate measures in self-defense under Article 51 of UN Charter targeting base from which cowardly armed attack against our citizens & senior officials were launched," Zarif tweeted. "We do not seek escalation or war, but will defend ourselves against any aggression."  <Source>

Let us consider that Iran, aided and abetted with nuclear technology from Pakistan and their use of North Korea as a testing laboratory, will sometime in the near future launch a ballistic missile with a simulated payload nearly vertically, much in the same manner as North Korea. And, when you alter the firing angle, the trajectory will include a path sufficient to strike American assets in the continental United States.

Let us consider that the greatest enabler of Iran's theocracy and nuclear ambitions have been the Democrat Party…

From former Democrat President Jimmy Charter, the father of Islamo-Facism, with his foreign policy that gave rise to the Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini. '

To the former Democrat President Bill Clinton who was bamboozled into allowing Pakistan to export nuclear technology and North Korea to go nuclear.

To yesterday's former Democrat President Barack Obama who released $150 BILLION in previously blocked funds to Iran and the payment of $1.7 BILLION in unmarked bills of various currencies, packaged on pallets and loaded on unmarked aircraft that landed in the dead of night as a ransom for Americans being held hostage. Money that provided economic relief to Iran, allowed them to continue the development of ballistic missile technology and nuclear weaponry, and to continue payments to proxies and terrorists in support of regional terrorism.

There are some, myself included, who believe that the most significant impetus for President Obama's treason -- aiding and abetting our enemies in a time of war -- was personal; as Obama was trying to secure his presidential legacy and legitimize a Nobel Peace Prize that was awarded on nothing more than "potential achievements." One can only characterize Obama's actions as a "preemptive surrender" to the future nuclear hostage demands from Iran. 

And, let us consider that many nations that we consider allies, namely France and Germany, continue to supply goods and services through the back-door to Iran, as do the foreign-domiciled subsidiaries of so-called American companies. A back door that needed to be slammed shut on the fingers of those who are subverting our sanctions and making the world less safe.

Bottom line...

There is no doubt in my mind that the latest weak Iran action is little more than a head-fake to buy more time à la North Korea. A hudna – a temporary cessation of militant activities that provides Muslims a chance to re-group, rearm, and prepare for the next fight.

There is no doubt in my mind that the Democrats, the domestic political party of slavery, antisemitism, appeasement, and anti-Americanism cannot be trusted with the safety and security of America and all Americans in a perilous world. And that the candidates for the presidency in 2020 reflect, not only an obeisance to socialist/communist ideology but a demonstrable willingness to damage the defense posture of the United States.

We are in danger of losing our Republic, courtesy of the Democrats who are acting as a fifth column to destroy America from within on behalf of our enemies, both foreign and domestic.
