Trump Derangement Syndrome Skyrockets Over Soleimani

Authored by Roger Simon via The Epoch Times,

Remember “politics ends at the water’s edge”?

In the Trump era, that patriotic phrase is not only dead, it’s decomposed.

And ironically so, since the latest manifestation of this decomposition is over the termination of Qasem Soleimani, the terror mastermind who was, on analysis, even more dangerous to the United States and the world than bin Laden and al-Baghdadi, monumentally evil as they were.

Neither bin Laden, nor al-Baghdadi ever had remotely the power at their disposals – even when the latter controlled his caliphate – Soleimani did as the military leader of by far the greatest state sponsor of terrorism. They were not even close to him who was head of Iran’s Quds force and the second most powerful person in that country of eighty plus million, with all its attendant weaponry and technology and ties to China and Russia.

Besides the thousands of Americans who either died or were maimed for life because of Soleimani, hundreds of thousands across the Middle East have met their fates at least in part through this man’s ministrations.

The once shining state of Lebanon is practically decimated through the rise of his Hezbollah, a fate he was replicating in Iraq. And then there’s Yemen and his Houthi and their simultaneous war against Saudi Arabia and their own people. And of course Israel where he kept the Jewish state in a crossfire between his clients Hamas, Islamic Jihad and, again Hezbollah (when Hezbollah was not busy exporting drugs into the United States).

It’s worth remembering Soleimani was in charge of all these operations at once, a veritable superstar of terror.

On top of all this, he had as much influence as anyone in keeping the Syrian Civil War alive. Current death (under)count: 400,000. Number of refugees: 5.7 million. He may have changed Europe as we knew it forever.

And let’s not forget Iran itself where only in the last few weeks Soleimani’s footprints were all over the deaths of thousands of peaceful anti-regime demonstrators. Nobody knows how many. And torture as well—something the Islamic Republic has made a specialty since 1979. Only the other day, they once again executed a man for homosexuality.

Yet the supposedly liberal and progressive Democrats are all in a dither about the assassination of Soleimani. After all, Trump did it. It has to be wrong.

Not only would these same Democrats obviously have applauded the action if it had been done by one of their own, equally obviously many of them would have attacked Trump even if had he assassinated Hitler in 1940, blaming the president for escalating the conflict.

It’s that simple—and nauseating—and every honest person in America knows it, especially the vets almost all of whom have friends incinerated by one of Soleimani’s roadside bombs, if they are not themselves walking around on prosthetic devices.

And this leaves aside whatever Qasem’s plans were that constituted the proximate cause of the assassination. If past performance is any indication, he had many.

Meanwhile the Democratic candidates are demonstrating uniform cowardice in the face of the action. Is there one of them you would want to have beside you in a foxhole?

It would seem to have been impossible, but as bad as it has been for the last three years, Trump Derangement Syndrome has reached unforeseen levels.

But a deeper cause of this increased derangement may stem from events that began September 11, 2012 – the Obama administration’s behavior in the aftermath of the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi, Libya.

As most will recall, the administration sent Susan Rice to inform the nation that the lethal terror attack occurred because of a spontaneous emotional reaction to an amateur anti-Islamic video that barely anyone had ever watched. It was not a planned attack by a terror group, Rice said. That was a despicable lie.

Kenneth Timmerman wrote in the NY Post in June 2014: “My sources, meanwhile, say Suleymani [sic] was involved in an even more direct attack on the U.S.—the killing of Ambassador Christopher Stevens in Benghazi, Libya.”

Timmerman goes on to detail a complicated and clever plot behind Benghazi worthy of the evil mastermind Qasem Soleimani. (Read it here.)

If this is true – and it seems vastly more likely than Susan Rice’s “explanation” – then what just occurred at Baghdad Airport is a prime, and highly-justified, example of that old saw: what goes around comes around.

  1. As Nikki Haley says, not even the Russians, Chinese, or No Korea are criticizing the killing of this guy – only the Democrats in our own country. By definition, these critics are not privy to all of the FACTS that Trump has. How can they have formed their conclusions without facts ? And the so called “media” and “journalists” — Wikipedia needs to change their definitions.

  2. Pelosi and other members of our corrupt
    Congress are putting every American in peril
    with the message they send to the world.
    Our President deserves our support and
    any DemonRAT snowflake liberal who is
    unwilling to stand up and support him needs
    to STFU.
    This man killed and tortured thousands of
    people..and Obama kissed his ass.
    SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW AND
    IN 2020…YOUR FREEDOM DEPENDS ON IT.

  3. I try to keep on top of all manner of things going on in this world today, and historically, and there is little doubt but that the alt-Left socialists, backed by pro-fascist Soros, proselytized by Obama and his encampment of gushing liberals who still think he is the new God, all are on a course trying to destroy this country for some fantasy called Utopian socialism. Yes, Trump is what is in their way, just like he himself said. We patriots are their true target. What would Obama have done? Oh, you mean, like he did before, send 1.5 billion to the Islamists and another $400 million on palettes by plan, to Iran, funds that upgraded their entire terrorist jihadists with high-end warfare capabilities? He would likely have sent Soleimani more money, considering Soleimani was surely one of the recipients of Obama’s money gift the last time. How many of our dead and disabled soldiers indirectly were the fault of Obama? Trump killed a modern version of Hitler, and left unfettered and undead, Soleimani’s future as a leader would guarantee the masscre of many, many more over time. Hezbollah and Hamas are here in America right now, awaiting activation. It is my bet that they will soon be activated and we’ll see the same kind of terrorism we now see in North Africa and other Muslim-occupied countries towards non-Muslims. What can we do for ourselves here? In primarily Red states, new laws against advocacy of socialism/communism/totalitarianism/fascism (and no, America is NOT fascist). Such laws are there to some extent, for example in Immigration laws prohibiting such folks from entering the USA (but which do not seem to be enforced today). We can’t just sit back and watch this anti-America movement grow! The year 2020 is a critical year for all of us patriots. Not fighting back is no longer an option. The Second Amendment recognizes that citizens are the militia by birthright; if citizens call for a “common ground” meeting in their own town and city, everyone there is, by birthright, a militia person. Think about that.

  4. In addition, our greatest enemy is not the pro-socialist gushers, who think that there should be a civil war and wrongly thinking that they have any chance at all of winning. In my research, it is my opinion that civil war likely would give the United Nations, and perhaps even NATO, the opportunity to send in troops to American soil. The UN was given permission by Obama to disarm everyone in case of a civil war; remember the white UN vehicles across America back then? Training is what they were doing. Who is in the UN armies? What? How many Muslims? A lot, and it is not likely they like Americans i.e., infidels. In a weakened state that civil unrest or war will likely cause, other enemies from outside may take the opportunity to enter the fray, and, if so, that could spell major disaster within our country. Never automatically discount potentialities; best to understand the enemy first and what they are capable of. We are living today in the most dangerous times America has ever known, and we better wake up to it.

  5. One little bit of advice to you dumbass Liberal and DEMONcrat SUPPORTER! Why didn’t you scream loud and HOLLOWING loud when a AMERICANS CITIZEN AND AMBASSADOR WAS KILL BY DEMOCRAT AND OBAMA? SOUND LIKE A BUNCH OF COWARD TO ME! CHRIS STEVENS BEG FOR HELP FROM OBAMA AND HILLIARY CLINTON TO NO GOOD FOR THREE WEEKS! SUSAN RICE SHOW YOU IT COULD HAD BEEN YOU WHO OBAMA AND DEMOCRATS DON’T CARE ABOUT!

  6. Soleimani was Obama’s buddy in Iran. He sent him letters, and invited the terrorist to the White House. Soleimani arranged for the funds distribution from the pallets of billions Obama sent over there. Probably where Obama got the funds (kickbacks) for this new beach digs.
    Soleimani hated all Americans (except for Obama). Obama supports the muslim brotherhood, and worships the demon farrakhan.
    All week since Soleimani was plastered all over the road in Iraq, the sick media fake news outlets lauded him as a ‘National Hero’ asnd “respected leader”. It’s sickening. Tonight I watched as Iranian protestors tore down his posters, and refused to walk across the American and Israeli flags painted on the road.
    Yeah, the fake news got it right again . . .
