Sometimes in politics, we are just left scratching our heads. This is such an example for me. On April 9th Senator Diane Feinstein dispatched a letter on Senate stationery. She sent it to the President of the United States. The letter did not ask for help for California. It requested aid for Iran.
Remember the old Florence Patton Reece union organizing song “Which Side Are You On?”
Help Iran… Feinstein
America is in trouble. We have a pandemic in progress. We are $25 trillion in debt. Senator Feinstein wrote to express her unhappiness. You see, the President is blocking Iran from getting $5 billion. It could come from the International Monetary Fund. The senator is spending her time urging the President to help this Islamic terror state. Iran has murdered countless Americans.
Senator Feinstein wants to get them money in the “interests of international security“. Her state has massive homelessness… and she’s lobbying for Iran… during a pandemic here. But… that’s Democrat leadership for you. They take care of their own. It is time for us to understand what we are looking at.
Help Iran… Group of senators…
In late March a group of senators sent a letter to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. Their letter was urging the lowering economic sanctions on Iran and Venezuela. The group wants to ease up on two terror states. You see it is “the right thing to do from a national security perspective.” Oh, really? You see, Senator Feinstein was not alone in expressing concerns to the administration. But that’s Democrat leadership for you. They take care of their own… Understand what you are looking at.
The signatories were: Connecticut’s two Senators, Murphy and Blumenthal, along with Hawaii’s Schatz, Maryland’s Van Hollen, New Mexico’s Udall, Maryland’s Cardin, Virginia’s Kaine, Vermont’s Leahy, Oregon’s Merkley, Delaware’s Carper, and Ohio’s Brown. Come, let us reason together. Have you served in the Middle East or Afghanistan? Do you agree with the characterization of this group of senators?
Two days earlier, Leahy, Udall, Carper, Brown, Merkeley, and Van Hollen had sent another letter. This one was sent to the Secretary of State on behalf of Hamas. Does everybody remember what Hamas is? Hamas is an organization America designates as a terrorist organization. It is responsible for killing hundreds of Israeli and American citizens. It uses suicide bombings and other terrorist attacks to express itself. But that’s Democrat leadership for you. They take care of their own.
Hamas has governed the Gaza Strip since it violently expelled the Palestinian Authority in 2007. The senators assert it is in America’s national security interest to act. That’s why they want to send your tax money to help the Hamas territory. Well no! How does it make sense to send money to an enemy? We know they will simply use the money to launch attacks on us?
This is Democrat leadership. You disagree? Why then have Senators Warren and Sanders joined the Tehran six? This is what Democrat leadership is. It is who they support and work for. Open your eyes and see what they are doing. Understand it for what it is.
We elect our leaders in America… We need to do a better job.
The only reason Bernie is not signatory to the Tehran Six letter is he thought that it didn’t go far enough. Instead, he joined Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Rep. Ilhan Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib. They are calling for a suspension of sanctions on Iran. Democrat leadership, House or Senate, favors terrorists over Americans. That’s Democrat leadership today. Understand what they are who who they support.
We know what Democrat leadership means. During a pandemic, they are working for our enemies and terrorists. They are not working to reduce debt, homelessness, or increase access to healthcare here in America. So sing along with me “Which Side Are You On?… Which side are you on?”
