Howdy, y’all! It’s great to be back home!
Ya know, there is no better example of stuck on stupid than the Democrat (socialist) Party and their absurd expedition of impeachment. If you want a clear case of insidious hypocrisy, well, let’s take a few moments to consider these truths.
1. When Barry Soetoro alluded to Dmitry Medvedev, the Russian president, that he would have more flexibility after his reelection, the left said nothing.
2. When Barack Hussein Obama invited the Muslim Brotherhood members to sit front and center at his Cairo University speech in early 2009, the left said nothing. Nor did they say anything when Obama supported the Muslim Brotherhood candidate for president, Mohammed Morsi, and offered him congratulations.
3. When Barack Obama sent billions of palletized laundered cash to the world’s #1 sponsor of Islamic terrorism, Iran, the left said nothing. And, lemme make this point clear, the original arms deal with Iran was with the Shah of Iran, who was deposed by the Ayatollah Khomeini. No previous US president had felt it necessary to pay Iran anything. Obama did, and the left said nothing.
4. I am still amazed at how the progressive socialist left dismissed the Islamic terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya which resulted in the deaths of four Americans: Amb. Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Tyrone Woods, and Glen Doherty . . . for which Obama and Henchwoman Hillary lied. I guess that was no big deal.
5. The left is all of a sudden complaining about military aid and support to Ukraine. They said nothing when Obama sent Ukraine socks and MREs when they were being overrun by Russia.
6. When Obama did nothing about the onslaught of ISIS, and dismissed them as the JV team, the left was silent. How many times did we watch ISIS openly parade in military vehicles in broad daylight? How many videos did we watch of their brutality? When an American was beheaded by ISIS, Barack Hussein Obama gave a weak response as he went to play golf.
7. As Bill Maher recently pointed out, if this was Donald Jr. who everyone knew had a sweetheart deal with a foreign nation, the leftist media would be blathering on incessantly. Yet, since it is a Biden, they are saying nothing.
8. Oh, remember that stupid “Russian reset button?” The left was silent.
9. When Obama dispatched and funded with American taxpayer dollars, campaign operatives under the purview of John Kerry’s State Department to undermine the reelection of Israeli PM Netanyahu, the left said nothing.
10. When Obama released five senior members of the Taliban from GITMO, overnight, unilaterally, the left said nothing. These are the same brutal members of the Taliban who are now part of the so-called Taliban negotiation team, with whom President Trump wisely broke off contact. And, lest we forget, we got back a damn traitor and deserter named Bowe Bergdahl whose parents received a White House Rose Garden welcome from Obama. NSA Susan Rice declared he had served with honor and distinction . . . and the left said nothing.
Now, these are just some of the foreign policy-related incidents where Obama failed the United States, the left did nothing. As a matter of fact, they chided the Republicans for ever mentioning impeachment. I have not mentioned any of the domestic policy issues, such as unleashing the IRS against American constitutional conservative organizations . . . or even Operation Fast and Furious.
Therefore, this week’s The Old School Patriot “Stuck on Stupid Saturday” recognition goes to Nancy Pelosi, Adam Schiff, Jerrold Nadler, and all those useful idiots in pursuit of this foolishness. The tyrannical and despotic nature of the progressive socialist left is in full display. And, I will ensure that their delusion and deranged nature is defeated here in the Lone Star State of Texas.
