Proof that the Left Loves Dictators

Posted by Troy on 9th May 2018 in Current Events, Political

Trump overturned the Iran Deal, and the Left loses their minds.  So lets review some stuff that the Left has lost their minds about:

1 – DACA

2 – The Paris Accord

3 – Iran Deal

What do all of these have in common?  They are all thoroughly unconstitutional.  The President cannot give a swathing amnesty or grant citizenship to people.  It’s not his jurisdiction.  Congress gets to set the rules for citizenship.  The President may really really really want to do something.  He may think it’s suuuuuuper important, but that doesn’t matter.  He does not have the power to act on his own.  We are governed by three, co-equal branches of government with separation of powers for a reason.

The same holds true with the Paris Accord and the Iran Deal.  These were agreements between those other countries and the Obama Administration, NOT America.  They were not treaties.  They were not ratified in the Senate.  Tell me, how would it be any different than if Trump made an agreement with Russia that they could occupy Hawaii and we would pay them $10 billion dollars a year?  Would you guys all say, “Oh, well, I mean… we have an agreement…”  Hell no!  You are only upset about this because you happen to like Obama.  I don’t even think that you know enough about these deals where you can actively say that you liked the deals.  They came from Obama, so they must be good.  Likewise, any idea that comes from Trump must be bad, if he started making unilateral deals like Obama did, you’d be howling about how he was acting like a dictator.

This proves what I have always said about the Left.  They love dictators.  They just want one they agree with.  They want nothing to stand in the way of the agenda of a leader they adore.  In fact, when parliamentary procedures or even an actual election defeats these ends, they have a royal hissy fit.

It is good and right that all three of these things END.  They were the acts of a dictator.  You call Trump a Fascist, but Obama was the Fascist.  All those things that you are truly upset about regarding Trump is that he actually returned matters to the constitutional base.

Long Live the Constitution!

Obama, Kneeling before Iran

Posted by Troy on 24th August 2016 in Current Events, Political

It is obvious, at this point, that Obama was willing to do anything to “achieve an Iran deal.”  I’m not entirely sure what kind of achievement this is…

Let’s just look at the facts:

1 – We made nuclear deal that pretty much just legitimizes what the Iranians were doing anyway.

2 – We gave them 400 million dollars.

3 – Realizing that he would look like a total douche if he gave away 400 million while they held prisoners, he demanded the prisoner release be made in conjunction with the money transfer, turning it into a ransom situation.  We have seen an increase in American kidnappings since this deal.

4 – Afterwards, we gave Iran $1.3 billion dollars.  This was paid in 13 payments of $99,999,999.99.  In other words, if they had paid 100 million dollars, he probably would have had to tell Congress about it.

5 – Realizing that the US is a joke, Iran has been talking trash and have been buzzing our ships with their little row boats.  Obama can’t make a fuss about anything because “Hey, I harbored in a new period of cooperation with Iran.”  Iran has also been pretty much ignoring all the rules set out I his precious “Iran Deal.”

So, in summary: Iran got a bunch of money, economic sanctions lifted, and increase prestige on the world stage, and we got nothing.  Worse than that, we paid handsomely.  Well…at least we got the 4 Americans back.  We did get that.

Here’s how a strong leader would have done things.  “We are willing to negotiate on the sanctions.  Release the prisoners first, and then we can see about working out our differences.”  The prisoner release should have been the precondition to the negotiations, not as a final demand to prevent Obama from looking like the weak, feckless President that he is.

Long Live the Constitution.

Iran Ransom

Posted by Troy on 3rd August 2016 in Current Events, Political

When we were negotiating the Iran Nuclear Deal, Obama delivered 400 million dollars.  His cover story was that the 400 million was money the sheik paid to America in exchange for arms in the 1970s before the Iranian Revolution and Iran taking our embassy hostage.  We feared that the international court would find against us and charge u s ten billion dollars, so we decided to settle for 1.7 billion.  This 400 million was merely the down payment.

First, this was clearly a ransom.  We pay the money right before the prisoners were released?  Even if it wasn’t a ransom, the timing, de facto, made it a ransom in the eyes of Iran.  If it’s viewed as a ransom in the criminal’s eyes, it’s a ransom.  It’s a ransom.  It’s that simple.  So, by paying this amount, we have set a precedence that the US gives money for US hostages.  As such, do not travel abroad.

Second, this is exactly my point about international organizations.  What the hell do we care what an international court says?  “You need to pay a terrorist nation 10 billion dollars.”  The only acceptable answer is: “____ you.  We are NOT paying a country that sponsors terrorism any money, especially considering they took our people hostage.  If you don’t like that, maybe the UN’s army should try to come take it… oh wait… WE ARE the UN army.  Ha.  Go ____ yourself.”

Third, why does no one care?  Trump makes an off-comment about “a gold star mother,” and the news media goes nuts.  Trump’s comments don’t make any difference about anything really important.  Hillary “negotiated” the Iran deal.  In effect, she set a dangerous precedence that puts additional American lives at stake, fast tracks Iran’s nuclear capability, and gives the largest state sponsor of terror huge sums of money.  Hell, even Josh Earnest couldn’t deny that the money might be used to sponsor terror.  Just totally wrote it off, it it didn’t matter.

Long Live the Constitution!
