The Democrats will do anything to defend Barack Obama.
They treat Obama like a revered king who could do no wrong.
And one Democrat went on Fox News and told one mind-numbing lie about Obama.
Barack Obama has to be steamed.
Piece by piece, Donald Trump is undoing the disasters caused by the Obama administration.
Trump cut taxes, rolled back burdensome regulations that were stifling the economy, and got the United States out of the disastrous Paris Climate Accord.
But one of the biggest accomplishments of Trump’s first term is reversing course on Obama’s failed foreign policy.
Trump campaigned on disentangling America from wasteful wars in the Middle East, and he’s taken steps to do that, starting with crushing ISIS in short order.
Trump also got the U.S. out of the Iran Nuclear Deal, which set Iran on a path to acquire a nuclear weapon.
North Korea has shown how unruly and dangerous a rogue nation can be with nuclear capabilities.
After years of provocation, Iran finally crossed a line and organized an attack on the American embassy in Baghdad using an Iraqi Shia militia force.
That escalation caused Trump to take out Iran’s top terror strategist Qasem Soleimani in a targeted strike.
The Democrats and their media allies predictably did what they almost always do when a Republican is in office: They sided with a foreign power over the United States.
The so-called mainstream media coverage of Soleimani’s death was disgusting.
The usual Democrat flaks went on television to sell the propaganda of Iran, all in an attempt to defend Obama’s failed Iran policy.
One Democrat in particular told an unbelievable lie in order to shield Obama.
California Congressman Ro Khanna appeared on Fox News and made a jaw-dropping statement.
During his appearance, Khanna said, “I believe the President Obama had a strategy of the JCPOA that would prevent Iran from becoming nuclear…There weren’t these incidents during the Obama Administration. We didn’t have protests against our embassies, the killing of American contractors. Americans were safe at that time.”
Khanna’s statement is truly shocking.
He seems to have forgotten what happened in Libya when the American embassy in Benghazi was attacked and four Americans were killed, including ambassador Christopher Stevens.
The attack on Benghazi was a result of a foolish design to put boots on the ground in Libya and depose Muammar Gaddafi for no apparent reason at all.
Then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton simply wanted war, and she got it.
And National Security Advisor Susan Rice went on television and lied through her teeth about the details of the Benghazi raid.
Khanna’s shameful segment on Fox News also ignores the fact American sailors were held at gunpoint and humiliated by Iranian forces.
Obama chose to appease Iran and got nothing in return, as the Iranians have given up pretenses of honoring the nuclear deal.
Trump has re-established deterrence in the region, which should dissuade terrorists from attacking Americans.
By showing that he means business, Trump has an opportunity to bring more troops home.
Under a weak foreign policy doctrine, such a move might attract belligerence from terror states, but Trump is putting a stop to that.
