Before President Donald Trump's press conference on Sunday confirming the death of ISIS leader Abu Bakar al-Baghdadi, former National Intelligence Director James Clapper appeared on CNN's "State of the Union" to discuss what he was hoping to hear the president say. One of the biggest things Clapper was interested in was seeing "the contributions the intelligence community made" that lead to al-Baghdadi's death. He admitted "taking down" al-Baghdadi has "huge symbolic meaning," especially because he has been a target for quite some time.

If Trump said today is Sunday, Clapper would disagree violently and Shifty Schiff would Mabel it an impeachable offense.

In similar circumstances what would James Clapper have done, killed al Baghdadi, or worried about unforeseen future circumstances that Islamist terrorists might or would take in what they claim is their response to al Baghdadi’s demise? Remember Clapper is now a liberal media talking head who must continuously make controversial anti-Trump comments, whether true or false, to keep his media job. There is no doubt that President Trump is a man of action who always puts America first when the opportunity arises and gets things done, not like the DC UniParty politicians and Deep State bureaucrats who get nothing done, if it is not in their individual political or bureaucratic interest.

WE do not need to be worried; we are finally in very good hands with our POTUS. YOU however should be very worried about your future since it is becoming more and more doubtful that it will be a good, peaceful one. If all goes well you'll be on a slow boat to Gitmo quite soon.

WE should be worried? The message to ISIS was pretty clear.

I don't think any human could survive the galvinization process. With hot dip galvinizing, the subject would be submerged in a tank of molten zinc. Then there's electrogalvinizing in which the ISIS member would be subjected to electrical current to cause a thin layer of zinc to adhere to its' surface. Either way, the ISIS member would not survive, but they wouldn't rust afterwards.

History will judge congressional Democrats harshly for their handling of President Trump's impeachment inquiry due to their lack of public debate and failure to be transparent with the American people, former special prosecutor Ken Starr said on "America's Newsroom" Monday."The text of the Constitution just entrusts [impeachment] to the good judgment, whether it's being exercised or not, to the House of Representatives," Starr said. "But history will, I think, judge this not well. It should judge it not well.

That’s because the inarguably good news threatens corporate media goals for shaping foreign policy, impeaching the president, and defeating Trump in 2020. “Last night was a great night for the United States and for the world. A brutal killer, one who has caused so much hardship and death, has violently been eliminated — he will never again harm another innocent man, woman or child,” Trump told the nation on Sunday. “He died like a dog.

The quip among Jewish Republicans about President Obama’s trafficking with anti-Semites was that he was so popular with American Jews that had he nuked Tel Aviv, he would have lost no more than 30% of the Jewish vote. The affinity for American Jews for the Democrat Party has long been a political curiosity. The distinguished essayist Milton Himmelfarb observed that in America, Jews had attained the socioeconomic status of Episcopalians, but for some reason they continued to vote like Puerto Ricans. Nothing seems to dissolve the sinew that ties Jews to the Democrats. President Obama’s association with the anti-Semitic Rev. Jeremiah Wright brought a collective yawn.
