OUR VIEW: President Trump's Decision To Nuke Iran Deal Another Pull Of The Lever Washing Obama Legacy Away
Donald Trump’s announcement
Tuesday that the United States would withdraw from the 2015 Iran nuclear
agreement marked another effort to flush the toilet of his predecessor's
legacy down a long awaited hole.
That's not even
beginning to talk about efforts to dismantle the hideous and disastrous
Obamacare while making drastic changes to U.S. immigration and military
That is correct. Under this deal, in as little as eight years all sanctions would be lifted and all bets would be off on how quick Iran would find a way to become a nuclear juggernaut in the Middle East.
But on Tuesday we saw
first hand that a US president was and is pushing back on Iran’s
dangerous and growing power.
Pundits and journalists on the left decried the move however, claiming the real blackmail in this was done by Israel and Saudi Arabia, both bitter enemies of Iran, in pressuring the United States to make this decision.
New York Times journalist Roger Cohen, who wrote, "In truth, Trump was led to this decision not by any serious calculus about the deal, but by his susceptibility to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Saudi fury at Iran, the pressure of conservative American Jews who support him and his iron principle that whatever Obama did must be bad. He succumbed to Iran derangement syndrome, a well-known American condition.
Mr. Cohen the only "deraignment syndrome" in this nation is the "Trump" variety that you and your left wing loons and retards show every day by your disdain for the truth.
I don't see any derangement syndrome in those statements. I see nothing but a nation seeking to be at peace, something the left has never understood!
Cohen said that the president's actions showed that America's words were worthless. Mr. Cohen is dead wrong.
It's the leaders of Iran's words that have always been worthless. In fact, many of their words over the years have also proved hateful and destructive to human rights. Those words have then in turn frequently spawned hostile acts toward women, gays, and pretty much any segment of the global population that declines to view the world through the eyes of their Islamic hope of dominating the world and killing Jews and Christians. Israel will always be the little "satan" and America, the great "satan" in the eyes of the Shiites.
To Mr. Cohen's point of
President Trump hating everything that President Obama did I'd say this.
The things that President Trump has corrected from the Obama years was
bad policy and bad for the nation! To liberals these things weren't, but
to scores of Americans, they were destroying our nation.
What took place Tuesday was another push on the lever of draining this sewage we know as the Obama legacy.
I actually love the sound that makes. With each decision President Trump makes like this, the fresher the air smells and the cleaner this nation's landscape looks.
Despite the predictions, let me assure you that the sound of President Obama's legacy being flushed down the toilet by President Trump is the only "blue wave" that is coming for America. It'll be totally gone soon. Not quick enough.
To Iran, I'd urge the mullahs to take note. There's a new sheriff in town. Your hayday of lies and subterfuge are over. There will be no more midnight runs on the airport tarmac to the tune of $150B. America is back and you're days of exporting terrorism around the world are over. That too is the sound of Israel and America both taking a breath of fresh air. Well done, Mr. President, well done.
