Today’s Campaign Update
(Because The Campaign Never Ends)
So, what actually happened last night? – Not much, other than open sedition and disgrace from the Democrat/media/Deep State Axis of disinformation.
When news broke that Iran was lobbing missiles from its soil at a pair of Iraqi military bases where U.S. and coalition forces were stationed, Democrats and media figures immediately started their own cheering section for the Iranian Mullahs on Twitter. MSNBC’s Larry O’Donnell kicked things off with this little gem, openly urging the Mullahs to take revenge on the bad Orange Man in the White House:
Trump wagged the dog.
Now the dog is wagging Trump.

San Fran Nan Pelosi, the ostensible Speaker of the House, did her own version of “Down the Field, Big Team, Down the Field” for the Mullahs with this tweet, blaming everything on the Orange Man:
Closely monitoring the situation following bombings targeting U.S. troops in Iraq. We must ensure the safety of our servicemembers, including ending needless provocations from the Administration and demanding that Iran cease its violence. America & world cannot afford war.
— Nancy Pelosi (@SpeakerPelosi) January 8, 2020
Even Tulsi Gabbard, an active reservist who should know better, made a statement blaming everything that’s ever happened vis a vis Iran on the bad Orange Man. Pathetic.
Pelosi’s statement that she was “closely monitoring” the situation was a lie. In fact, she was partying at the opening of a new D.C. restaurant as the situation in Iraq was unfolding, as an enterprising attendee posted a picture of her yucking it up with her fellow party-goers and posted it on Twitter:
No wonder those articles of impeachment she’s been holding onto for weeks smell like vodka and mothballs.
The nation’s Unfrozen Caveman Senator, Quid Pro Joe Biden, was as discombobulated as always, twice confusing the nation of Iran with Iraq. The fawning corrupt reporters present attributed the latest evidence of Biden’s creeping dementia to a simple “misspeak”, because of course they did.
Also, per pooler @ShaneGoldmacher, Biden twice appeared to misspeak, saying 'Iraq' instead of 'Iran':
"I said not long ago that as the walls close in on this president, I worried that he was going to get us in war with Iraq, as the ultimate wag the dog…'' Biden said.

Meanwhile, over at CNN, it was business as usual:
Thankfully, whether due to poor aim of the Iranian military or by intention, no U.S. or Coalition personnel were killed in the missile attacks. As one friend emailed me this morning: “Iran named this attack after General Soleimani…that’s why it was scattered all over the desert, not hurting anyone.”
The lack of U.S. casualties, however, did not prevent the despicable hacks at MSNBC from giving airtime to Iranian propaganda claiming the attacks had killed 30 U.S. military personnel. As reported by the Daily Caller:
MSNBC host Chris Matthews brought in NBC News Tehran bureau chief Ali Arouzi, who repeated the Iranian claims to MSNBC’s national audience.
“We’ve just getting reports now that a second wave of rocket attacks have been launched from Iran. The IRGC was saying that Ayatollah Khamenei, the supreme leader of this country, was in the control center coordinating these attacks. This is, uh, this bit I’m not sure about,” Arouzi said, before sharing the unverified propaganda claims, “but Iran state media is claiming that 30 U.S. soldiers have been killed in this attack. Now, this is not confirmed, this is just coming from Iranian media, but we have just stepped over the precipice, Chris.”
The only “precipice” that had been stepped over was MSNBC’s stepping over the precipice into rank sedition and fake news.
Senator Marco Rubio summed things up like this early Wednesday morning:
Worth noting that we already have several indications that this attack may have been aimed at portraying strength inside #Iran while avoiding escalation against a superior military

President Trump, showing the restraint towards Iran’s constant provocations that he has demonstrated throughout his presidency, actually did closely monitor the situation throughout the evening. Despite wild media reports variously claiming that he had scrambled stealth fighters out of the UAE and ordered nuclear-warhead-armed B-52s to prepare for takeoff, the U.S. held its massive fire and allowed the situation to fully play itself out.
Earlier on Tuesday, during a press availability at the White House, President Trump summed up the decision to take out Soleimani in his own unique way:
Soleimani was a monster.

The President will make a statement to the nation later this morning, laying out the details from the U.S. point of view, and discussing his next steps moving forward. If he were the hothead know-nothing the seditious U.S. media portrays him to be, hell would already be raining down all over the Middle East.
Be thankful he’s your President, and not the actual hothead who openly celebrated the “successful” Obama Administration plan to throw the entire nation of Libya into 19th century turmoil, a state it remains in to this day.
That is all.
