Lindsey Graham Proves Dems Have No Case

Since September 11, 2001, the United States has been on a mission to eradicate terrorism from the world. Right after the 9/11 attacks on our nation, we responded by sending thousands of troops overseas into areas where extremists bent on the destruction of America resided. And we prevailed. We found our enemies, and we took our revenge. We toppled Saddam Hussein’s rule and brought his power to an end.

But that did not mean all of our problems with terrorism would also come to a halt. On the contrary, actually. As with just about any corrupt and divisive system, there always seems to be someone else or several others who will eventually step up and take over, continuing the cycle of hate and violence. Proof of that can be found in the recent attack on the US embassy in Baghdad, Iraq carried out by Quds forces organized and lead by Iranian military leader Qassem Soleimani.

And so our war on terrorism has continued. In response to that recent attack, our government scoured the earth for Soleimani. When an opportunity presented itself, President Donald Trump wisely ordered that our military engage Soleimani and end his oppressive rule.

But of course, those who oppose our Commander-in-Chief aren’t happy with his decision. Some, like House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, claim he had no authority to act in such a way because he did not obtain congressional approval. Pelosi wrote, “The Trump Admin has conducted strikes in Iraq targeting high-level Iranian military officials and killing Iranian Quds Force Commander Qassem Soleimani without an AUMF against Iran. Further, this action was taken without the consultation of the Congress.”

Others say the swift action will only cause more harm than good, such as former VP Joe Biden, who likened it to “throwing a stick of dynamite on a tinderbox.”

However, what each criticism fails to acknowledge is the hypocrisy they prove.

For those like Pelosi and Schumer, who are worried about the president overstepping his bounds, they seem to have forgotten that their very own Barack Obama carried out more than 2,800 similar missions, all without congressional approval. Yet, he was never chastised for it somehow.

And as Senator Lindsey Graham, who was a military lawyer for 33 years, pointed out, Trump has every right to do what he did. He told Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo this past weekend, Trump “does not need congressional authorization to defend troops in the field of harm’s way.”

For those like Biden, the hypocrisy is no less personal. In fact, it is even more so. Biden, as the former vice president, held significant sway over the construction of the new Iraqi government in 2011 after Saddam Hussein was killed. But instead of placing someone who would lead without regard to partisan concern and impartiality, Biden chose Nuri Al-Malika to be Prime Minister of Iraq, who was handpicked by Soleimani himself and completely anti-American. Thus, under Al-Malika’s control, the nation became a puppet state of Iran.

The “tinderbox” Biden refers to was of his own making. And yet he has the gall to blame Trump.

And Sleepy Joe isn’t the only one who says this move was one that will create even more chaos. Democratic Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez says that Trump now “risks the lives of millions of innocent people.”

She tweeted last Friday, “Last night the President engaged in what is widely being recognized as an act of war against Iran, one that now risks the lives of millions of innocent people. Now is the moment to prevent war & protect innocent people – the question for many is how, publicly & Congressionally.”

But Senator Graham wasn’t about to let her off the hook either. He responded by saying, “AOC doesn’t know anything about the law of armed conflict, obviously. Every commander in chief has the right to defend our people on the battlefield.”

And since it has become public knowledge that Soleimani and his forces had planned for more similar and just as devastating terrorist, that is precisely what this was. The President was defending his citizens, the people he swore an oath to protect, from a force that was hell-bent on doing them harm.

As Graham pointed out, “In AOC’s world, I guess we’re supposed to sit back and watch a bunch of Americans get killed. We’re not the bad guys. The Iranians are the bad guys and if you don’t see that, you’ve missed a lot in the last 40 years.”

    • Most of these comments are negative to the corrupt party and people of hate and division the anti-GOD, anti-American democrats , talk is cheap, how did they get in power in the first place , come on you Americans talk is cheap and actions speak louder than words. Beware the anti-GOD, anti-American democrats and their tools for it the bought out biased medias propaganda LIES and be vigilant to their corruption and fraudulence in all elections be it local and especially national, you much watch for it ands top it, Do NOT just accept their lies of election!

Get out of the false mindsets that any other party vote is wasted besides the current , established corrupt r.i.n.o.s, and especially the corrupt anti-American democrats and stop having blind patriotism to their corruption.

  2. I’m voting for Trump in 2020 and 2024 if he runs then we can Not Let the dems back in the WhiteHouse . And get the terrorists out of congress. Yes that mean Oelosi and Shumer too .

    • The Damorats have made life unpleasant for all of us who want a great, progressive, Christian Nation…A Nation like our great President is working diligently to make happen! I can’t believe how those people have acted throughout President Trump’s time in office! Just look at all of his accomplishments! He has proven, over and over that he can overcome all the evil against him and just keep on “Making America Great Again”! The “Has-been” presudebts prior to President Trump did great disservices to our Nation! But, with God, we can overcome this because he provided leaders to bring us back to “Great”! May God continue to bless America, and President Donald J. Trump, his family, and all the people who support our President Trump as he “Keeps America Great”!

  3. So Pelo will have to go back into her hidy hole in the basement with her handcuffs.

  4. I also am sick of the Democrats. They get crazier by the day. They are lunatics.Please vote all of them out of office and limit how long they can serve.

    • Look back on the HISTORY of how Adolf Hitler got his start. You will also learn he formed his party on the Democratic Parties handbook and Charter. Today’s DUMOcRATS are no different.

    • I agree, hopefully common sense prevails in November and Donald Trump is re-elected and republicans control the house and Senate. And get back to the people’s business.

  5. Fed up with the Dirty Democrats in political places!!! Impeach & remove Pelosi treason against our President! Corruption 8 long years with Obama!

    TRUMP 2020 & 2024 🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    Make America great again!!!!

  6. Anyone currently in the Dem party is absolutely either start raving mad or possessed with evil. You can’t have a conscience and be a Dem especially a Congressional member there to do the work of the American Citizens. These are the most vile, corrupted wicked people on the face of the earth! That is why they would prefer to find fault with our own President than a madman evil snake terrorist mastermind conducting terrorist operations. They are so off the rails that they have no concept of virtue, integrity or goodness; they are rotted to the core! Look at Maxine the Crazy Machine, or Pelosi and any of the Dem officials and you see the seething sickness in their faces and eyes.

  7. For 2024 we may have to vote for Trump JR.

  8. “….their very own Barack Obama carried out more than 2,800 similar missions, all without congressional approval. Yet, he was never chastised for it somehow.” What is just as bad as the Dems keeping their mouths shut when Obama did these crazy things, so did the Republicans. I have read in these comments on the necessity of “growing a set.” Again, this can apply to the Republicans also. I prefer both sides sit and legislate like adults and not like incorrigible children. The problem with that is if one side won’t sit and discuss, neither side and sit and discuss.

  9. Thank you Senator Graham for all your hard work and especially for encouraging the other Republican Senators to do what is “RIGHT” and it will result in each Senator receiving the reward of going back in Office “for the American People”.
    I do not understand “why” we keep talking about impeaching Pelosi, Schumer, Waters , AOC, Omar, two other squad members and Shiff. To restore trust from the American People in our Government, we need to get these crazy people OUT of the government——–NOWWWWWWW!!! not next week.
    What are we waiting for?? Are we waiting for someone else to start the process so we can shift the blame on them just because we do not have the guts to stand up for the right thing even if people do not like what we are trying to accomplish. Do you suppose that other guys can grow a set and “make sure” that the American People gets what all the Senators and Congressmen have promised to produce , ONCE ELECTED. They need to take a few lessons from President Trump just doing what you say you will do.
    I promise I am not trying to dump ALL the blame on you or anyone else, but SOMEONE has to take the bull by the horns and get done what is needed for our Great Country to return to common sense and continue to perform and produce exactly what our Forefathers fought and died for. If our Forefathers can accomplish what they did with what they had to work with, then we should be able with God’s help accomplish miracles. If we will place our FAITH in the ONE that created us all, then we can MOVE MOUNTAINS !!
    God Bless and know that you are in my Prayers EVERY Day.

  10. As a Trade Tower widow I ask any Democrat WHO in your own family will you sacrifice to the fantasy that Muslim terrorists are just like us? Sacrifice to the consequences of open borders?? How cowardly can you be to wish your own people DEAD before a terrorist?? To support him before your own President? Disgusting.

  11. Demoncrazy all including Pelosi have to go period. NO VOTING FOR DEMONCRAZY !!! Mr. Trump is our President and Patriot and remain to be a President period!

  12. Senator Graham is a tiger President trump looks like Lion I’m Iranian american support them to Nuke Iran regime

  13. I think Senile Nancy Pelosi might wish to read the U.S. Constitution for ONCE in her life and find TRUTH and FACTS, instead of LYING all the time like she, Nadler and Schiff did during the ILLEGAL COUP impeachment SCAM. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

  14. It is awful that both party are not thinking correctly. I support the President. I might not agree with him at times, but he is still in charge. I just wish he would not make fun of anyone. We all have sinned and come short of our HEAVENLY FATHER.

  15. Linsey Graham is a disgrace to South Carolina and to the nation. He should be voted out and thrown out of Washington

  16. There’s a couple things wrong with the president notifying congress before taking necessary action. (1) If action is necessary there’s no time for discussion with people who have no brains. (2) If the president should notify congress people like John Kerry would immediately notify people like Iran with a warning of what’s coming and get a lot of our people killed.

  17. If you want the corruption and the lawlessness out of Washington you must get rid of corrupt trump and his administration of no nothing’s and morons

    • I think you are talking about the ”DO NOTHING” Dem Morons. They are the ones that we need to get out of Washington for sure if we want our country back.

  18. I think you are talking about the ”DO NOTHING” Dem Morons. They are the ones that we need to get out of Washington for sure if we want our country back.

  19. The democrats have gone so far as to fuss about how much money Trump has spent on golfing. It seems to be a bit funny that they forget that Michelle rented the entire Taj Mahal for an entire month for a vacation with her family. Add to this the expense of travel and security and I wonder how much the final bill came to.

    I think that it would be a good idea to have all 50 states recall their representatives and tell them that they have 30 days to make serious progress on doing the peoples business or else they will be immediately replaced with someone who will.

  20. Lindsey can’t PROVE anything. He can CLAIM that Democrats have no case, but he can’t prove it.

    • Ivanka would be great also and maybe pick up women’s votes. These letters are comforting to know their are so many who see the light and the right. Actually I would love to see Ivanka pick up where her father can’t go because of the current term law which was put into place after FDR. She is a strong woman and also has integrity. The damocrates just are in a panic because they have commited punishable crimes and don’t want to go to jail where many of them belong.

    • Lindsey doesn’t need to prove anything. The two impeachment ideas presented by the damocrates were denied as reasons for impeachment by our forefathers, the men who shaped the constitution originally so they are acting against the constitution by subitting those reasons for impeachment.

  21. Well when the man in office starts ww111, maybe u all will think differently.

  22. And for the second time, my comment is not posted. Do you fear Jesus’s words? “… and love your neighbor …”

    • Yes, the Bible tells to “love your neighbor…” However, the Muslims are not our neighbors; they are our enemies. Our love for them consists of praying for them as fellow human beings, that they might know the Truth. In the meantime we are not expected to sit back and let them take from or kill us.
