Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you know that Trump made the decision to pull out of the Iran nuke deal, which sent the Left for a loop. As an example, the New York Times attacked the new Secretary of State Mike Pompeo for not being there when Trump made the announcement. Because I guess the President needed his hands to be held by his Secretary of State as he was giving the announcement.
The Failing New York Times ran the story titled: “At a Key Moment, Trump’s Top Diplomat Is Again Thousands of Miles Away.” The story reads as follows: “Senior State Department officials were momentarily speechless on Tuesday when asked why Mr. Pompeo did not delay his trip by a day to be in Washington during Mr. Trump’s Iran deal announcement.”
Again, why would Pompeo being there even matter? So he might witness it? He certainly wasn’t going to stop it. Why would it matter? For no other reason than it makes Trump look bad… In the Left's mind. I mean, that’s what the MSM is always striving to do, so they are making this to be a far bigger deal than it really is.
Pompeo not being there during the announcement isn’t a big deal. You know what is a big deal? Obama not getting support from HIS OWN PARTY when signing the Iran deal in the first place. Which is, by the way, the reason Trump can so easily pull out of the Iran deal. No one in Congress ratified it and made it a treaty. Even the Iranians never signed it, it was just a promise from Obama to give hundreds of billions of America’s dollars to help Iran “build bridges and roads”. Obama was pretty much on his own regarding the deal. THAT is a big deal.
But Pompeo not being present is not a big deal. And considering what he was actually doing, that story only makes the New York Times look even worse.
What was Pompeo doing, exactly? Well, it really is no secret today. He was in North Korea negotiating the release of three Americans detained in North Korean prisons. I’m hesitant to call it “negotiating”, since we didn’t really give anything in return. Unlike Obama, who also said the Iran deal was to free some American hostages in Iran, Trump and Pompeo didn’t have to give up a king’s ransom and the safety of the civilized world for these Americans.
So excuse Mr. Pompeo for not attending something he had nothing to do with while he goes to rescue three Americans detained in a horrible place. His fault, I guess.
But still, I do want to point out how ridiculous that story was in the first place. Ignore the fact that Pompeo was rescuing American hostages in North Korea. He could’ve been sitting at home playing Call of Duty for all it mattered. His absence doesn’t mean anything in the long-run. But why was this a story published by the NYT to look as though it was a scandalous thing? Because that’s just how they treat the Trump administration.
Seriously, the NYT (and the MSM as a whole, really) could make Trump choosing to drink Sprite over Coca-Cola seem like a disqualifying factor for presidency. Well, that’s not entirely true. They can TRY and write stories about how disqualifying it is but they couldn’t really make most people believe it.
Even for their own readers, there is a limit to how ridiculous and bombastic their stories can be. If they ran a story saying that Trump is a Martian from the year 5400, I would find it hard to believe that their readers would start thinking that too.
Don’t misunderstand, there could be a few cooks who would believe literally anything, but the majority of their readers would almost certainly not believe that… at least not literally.
But returning to the eye-rolling NYT piece, even Fox News took note of the idiotic Trump-bashing article, saying: “The story, written by Gardiner Harris, focused on Trump’s top diplomat being absent when Trump ‘made what could be the most significant diplomatic announcement of his presidency’ by pulling out of the Iran nuclear agreement… The absence of Mr. Pompeo and other top State Department officials left perplexed European diplomats privately complaining that they were having trouble getting answers from Washington.”
So the reason this is supposed to be a big deal is because some European Globalists were whining that they were not getting many answers from Washington? Why would that matter at all? This was a deal between Obama (one can hardly say this was a deal involving the U.S., really) and Iran. There was no third party involved. To what questions did they seek answers?
“Why did Trump pull out of the deal?” Because it’s a horrendous deal that only strengthens Iran’s ability to develop nuclear weapons in the future and become an even bigger threat to the region and to the world. They hate Israel, have quarrels with Saudi Arabia, and detest the Western world altogether. Why did we pull out? Because it was a stupid deal in the first place that should never have even happened and only happened through Obama’s dictatorial style of issuing executive orders for things he wanted when Congress told him “no”. He was, in essence, a small child with a powerful pen.
“How was Trump able to pull out of the deal in this manner?” Because Obama signed the deal in the same manner. Trump would not have been able to pull us out of the deal like this if it had been ratified by Congress. Because Obama issued an executive order to make this deal, it was effectively a deal signed with a pencil. As easy as one can write something with a pencil, one can erase something written with a pencil.
This is much in the same way Trump has every right to get rid of DACA. DACA was unconstitutional in the first place and was issued via executive order. That’s why it’s ridiculous for a judge to say that Trump can’t get rid of it the way he is.
Because the Iran deal was never ratified, it doesn’t have to go through Congress to be rid of. And even if Trump decided that this matter should go through Congress, Congress would’ve most likely agreed to pull out as well. Like I said, Obama couldn’t even find much support within his own party. People like Chuck Schumer, as scummy as they may be on other issues, still tend to somewhat favor Israel. The Iran deal only further threatened Israel. So today, even if Congress were to have voted on it, it’s entirely likely that at least a decent number of Democrats might’ve voted to get rid of the deal.
But since Obama was a dictator and was never opposed, he could sign the deal without much trouble. Only problem is that future Presidents could do much the same, even regarding EO’s signed by previous Presidents. Frankly, that’s part of the reason Trump has been so successful so quickly in rebuilding the nation.
After the Democrats lost their supermajority in Congress, Obama refused to make any bipartisan deals with the Republicans. He didn’t want to negotiate or give anything up. So his legislation was largely left up to his pen. And he was able to do that because Republicans were not going to oppose him on that, fearing backlash from the media.
But because Obama was destroying the country by pen and paper, Trump can rebuild the country in the same way. The trick is finding a way to make it permanent, or at least tougher to undo.
Regardless, I will end this article by laughing at the NYT’s pathetic attempt at smearing Trump and Pompeo. If this is the best the Left can offer at this point in time, the Left’s blue wave will be as threatening as a bath’s waves.
“Whoever walks in integrity walks securely, but he who makes his ways crooked will be found out.”
We bring you the TRUTH that the Left denies you. You'll live a more joyful and victorious life, because the Truth will set you free...
