Apparently Nancy Pelosi was more than just a little miffed over the fact that Democrats did not receive advanced notice regarding the recent, and very successful, effort to bring about the demise of Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi allowing him to meet up with his 72 virgins, while the Russians were. But I’d like to make a couple points here. First, the Russians needed to be notified to ensure the safety and success of the mission. Second, notifying congressional Democrats is a presidential courtesy and I’ve seen nothing to indicate that Democrats are actually worthy of such a courtesy.
And it was in voicing her obvious displeasure that Ms. Pelosi took what has been described as being another on what has become a very long list of her thinly veiled pot shots at President Trump, on Sunday, after he announced the death of ISIS founder and leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, complaining that the “Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified” in advance of the raid. But as is always the case, if you want something to get out you telegraph, telephone, television or of course, tell-a-Democrat. But this was not something anyone wanted to get out.
So as we all now know, President Trump announced on Sunday that ISIS leader al-Baghdadi died as a result of a raid conducted by U.S. Special Forces. It was in making the announcement in an address that the president said, “Last night the United States brought the world’s number one terrorist leader to justice, Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi is dead.” It was in doing so that the president said, “He was the founder and leader of ISIS, the most ruthless and violent terror organization anywhere in the world.” Informing the Democrats would not have been a very smart move.
Also according to the president, the terrorist leader chose to detonate his suicide vest as U.S. forces closed in on him choosing to take the coward’s way out instead of dying for his supposed cause, like a man. President Trump said, “He died after running into a dead-end tunnel, whimpering and crying and screaming all the way.” Which, I might add, is the way these gutless wonders always choose to leave this world, surrounded by innocents and strapped with a bomb they then detonate. That my friends, is about as clear cut an act of cowardice as one can possibly imagine.
And let me remind Pelosi how it was once again left up to President Trump to clean up yet another mess left behind by his predecessor, Barry O-Bummer. You see it was back in 2009 that an obviously less than rehabilitated al-Baghdadi was freed from a U.S. prison camp. He probably didn’t have any plans to magically transform into a non-radical Moslem, either. The O-Bummer administration had to have known this, yet it still decided to let him go. And also let’s not forget how it was also this same administration that swapped five terrorists for a traitor, Bowe Bergdahl.
Anyway, according to reports, notable members of Congress – including House Intelligence Committee chair Adam ‘Shifty’ Schiff – were not briefed on the raid in advance due to the fear of leaks. The president confirmed that in his statement on Sunday saying, “We notified some; others are being notified as I speak.” He said, “We were going to notify them last night but we decided not to do that because Washington leaks like I’ve never seen before.” And he continued saying, “There is no country in the world that leaks like we do and Washington is a leaking machine.”
Pelosi, while congratulating the “dedication and skill of our military and our intelligence professionals,” also took a veiled shot at Trump in her statement, lamenting that the “Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified” in advance. It was in her statement that Pelosi said, “Americans salute the heroism, and acknowledge the work of our partners in the region.” And she added, “We are relieved that no U.S. personnel died in this daring raid. The death of al-Baghdadi is significant, but the death of this ISIS leader does not mean the death of ISIS.”
And she went on to say, “This month, the House passed a joint resolution on an overwhelmingly bipartisan 354-60 basis which rejects President Trump’s green-lighting of Turkish aggression into Syria against our Kurdish partners, and calls on him to present a clear strategy to defeat ISIS. The House must be briefed on this raid, which the Russians but not top Congressional Leadership were notified of in advance, and on the Administration’s overall strategy in the region. Our military and allies deserve strong, smart and strategic leadership from Washington.”
Look, I think we all know that the Democrats would have gladly taken the opportunity to undermine the success of mission if they had been informed of it ahead of time. President Trump should have said that in his briefing. He was being nice by identifying them as leakers and not by calling them out as the traitors we all know them to be. They would have notified the targets like O-Bummer did. Remember the planes dropping warning flyers before we attacked? O-Bummer’s rules of engagement were not conducive to achieving victory. That’s not the case under President Trump.
Democrats, would have made a political calculation as they have a history of doing when it comes to how they have chosen to deal with this president. They possess a unique unwillingness to allow President Trump to achieve anything that might be viewed as being a win and therefore leaking information of the raid would have been in their best interest, politically. President Trump would be blamed for including too many people and that’s why the leak happened. Unless they are in charge they won’t allow anyone to gain credit. They function only as saboteurs and nothing more.
So I guess we’re just all supposed to be ok with the fact that the Democrats continue with their effort to manufacture all manner of lies about President Trump, as well as those in his administration. It’s now gotten to the point where none of us, including the president, should any longer care about what may causes the Democrats to get their panties in a bunch. I couldn’t care less if Pelosi doesn’t like not being included in the loop. The Democrat leaders continue to treat our President with disrespect, and to call him just about every name in the book and that’s ok with them.
I mean the mentality behind how it is that the Democrats have decided to approach this issue is one that seems to have its basis in what is a rather twisted concept that has the enemy (ISIS and al-Baghdadi) of my enemy (President Trump) is my friend! Never in my 60+ years of being on this planet have I seen either party driven to the point where we now find the Democrat Party simply because of the result of a single election. Usually both parties are adult enough to realize that their candidate, for whatever reason, was not the one voters wanted as their president and move on.
And it was during this past week that Pelosi and any number of other Democrats have continued to crow about the fact they can do whatever they want in the House. That’s fine. However, it’s Trump who’s President. He made the call on this endeavor. It was an awesome success due to our fabulous military. Pelosi and her fellow Democrats can sit down and shut up. The President didn’t have to notify them, nor did they deserve any professional courtesy from our President. Pelosi & Co. can simply get over it, or not. Congratulations to our fabulous military and our President.
If I were President Trump there’s no way in Hell that I would have notified the Democrats, nor those known to be RINOs, in Congress prior to such a raid because I would fear it would be leaked and the raid compromised to the point where it would either need to be called off, or would have resulted in American casualties. There’s no way I would send our military on a raid such as this and risk letting Democrats and RINOs know before hand, those people in uniform risk too much already, they don’t need lying scumbag politicians in D.C. creating additional risk for them.
Today’s Democrats are about politics and power above ALL else. I have no doubt that someone from within their ranks would have eagerly, even cheerfully, sabotaged this mission if it meant they could then use it to label President Trump as a failure or reckless. Democrats would have willingly sacrificed troops to gain a political talking point for impeachment. Can you imagine if any of these U.S. troops would he been killed or taken prisoner? The Democrats and their allies in the ‘fake news’ would have had an absolute field day, labeling it as being another reason for impeachment.
The Democrats see American casualties as justified ‘collateral damage’ if it helps them in their effort to take back the White House. We are talking about the party that is furious that Americans have been taken off welfare rolls and put back to work. The same party that hates the fact that the middle class is able to enjoy the fruits of their labor instead of being slaves to the Democrat elites. They would rather enrich themselves than to see their fellow countrymen do well. The Democrats have embraced the decline of Western Civilization to fatten their own wallets.
President Trump fired a direct shot and scored pretty much of a direct hit on Pelosi and her impeachment-crazed fellow Democrats. His message to Pelosi and her cadre of unbalanced piss-ants plus all of the NeverTrump RINOs was quite simple and crystal clear: 1) you cannot be trusted to keep your big mouths shut and 2) you don’t matter to the operation in the slightest. Heck, Pelosi cannot even plan, wage or co-ordinate a battle against garbage, used syringes, piss puddles or other human waste spilling out onto the streets and sidewalks of her own home town. And why is that?
Pelosi shows her ignorance over President Trump notifying the Russians and other countries and players in the area. Those people needed to know so that they would not be caught off guard, unaware and started into taking military action of their own against approaching unknown forces. Especially since the airspace our military was flying through is under Russian control. It was war with bullets, shells, bodies, blood and explosions. And it was nothing short of amazing! The right people were left uninformed and therefore plan came off without a hitch! Just as it should be!
