Pelosi should ignore the press on Iran

As the press spins the death of Qassim Suleimani via a Reaper missile, Democrats would be advised to ignore the reports.

Most Americans are.

We are glad the sumbidge is in the past tense. Iran's mullahs attacked our embassy. We took out their consigliere who ordered the attack.

No one wants a war. Taking out Iran's top general decreases the chance of a war.

But the press wants President Donald John Trump gone. The press wants to turn a retaliation into a war crime. In a 1,650+ word piece -- "Iran Uncertainty Grips Congress as Impeachment Looms" -- the New York Times did not even mention the embassy.

Instead it said, "President Trump’s abrupt decision to kill Iran’s top security commander has reshuffled the already fraught political dynamic around impeachment and thrust matters of war and peace into the middle of an election-year debate over whether to remove Mr. Trump from office."

The Times would have you believe that President Trump was bored by eating junk food and watching Gorilla TV, so he decided to send Suleimani to collect his virgins.

But Iran attacked us in Iraq. We returned fire. Democrats want to spin that into a war crime. They have the disadvantage of leaping on the embassy attack and labelling it President Trump's Benghazi. This painted them in a corner because they demanded he do something and he did.

His decisive retaliation watered down an already weak impeachment case.

House Republican Leader McCarthy tweeted, "While Democrats are trying to remove President Trump from office, the President is focused on removing terrorists from the face of the earth."

The Times wrote in response, "Democratic leaders insisted the two issues must not be interwoven, and said that lawmakers were obligated to follow through with the impeachment process even as they debated the way forward on Iran. Speaker Nancy Pelosi on Sunday evening told Democratic lawmakers in a letter that the House would act swiftly and vote later in the week on a resolution to limit the scope of the president’s war-making powers in Iran."

Sarah Sanders gave her own response. She tweeted, "How many of you are thinking that Qassem Soleimani was the Democrats bag man in Iran? Are Democrats getting some kickbacks (a la Ukraine) from that $150 billion Obama, so generously gave to the Mullahs? Is this why the Congressional Democrats are so mad?"

She may be onto something. John Kerry was the secretary of state when we gave Iran the money. In May 2018, he met with Suleimani in Paris.

Democrat Senator Mark Warner was the point man for Democrats on NBC's Sunday talk show. He juggled impeachment and Iran poorly.

He said, "Congress has to do both of our constitutional responsibilities. One, to protect the American people and be a coequal branch of government with the administration to make sure that we keep Americans safe.

"Secondly, we also have to take on the responsibility of what’s going to come over at some point from the House, and that’s to conduct a full and fair trial."

Democrats have not impeached the president. They voted to, but until Nancy sends the resolution to the Senate, he is not impeached.

The Times acknowledged this.

It said, "Lawmakers and aides close to Ms. Pelosi say she has not yet made up her mind on how or when to proceed, and said foreign policy would not affect her thinking. A decision could come as soon as this week, when House lawmakers reconvene on Tuesday and the speaker holds a series of meetings with her leadership team."

Impeachment is suicide for Democrats. The press has spun asking about a legitimate investigation into Biden's corruption as asking Ukraine to dig up dirt on Biden, but everyone knows that isn't true.

After 50 years -- maybe more -- of having the press in its hip pocket, Democrats now have the press dangling around its neck like an albatross. The alternative reality the press created is like the pool of water that showed Narcissus his reflection. He was so enamored of himself that when he leaned to kiss his reflection, he fell in the pool and drowned.

Democrats are leaning to kiss the reflection. Pelosi should pull them back.
