Opinion| Mark Sidney| Just when you worry that the Democratic Party may very well be aligning with the Islamic Republic of Iran over the United States of America, enter Speaker, Nancy Pelosi.
The United States Congress has seemingly been 110% behind the United States overthrowing, or outsourcing the overthrowing of regimes, across the world in the last few decades.
Whether it be Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria … Ukraine …. I could go on and on.
However, it now seems that there is one regime that Mrs. Pelosi and the Democrats are dead set on protecting.
A regime which almost fell to a liberalizing, popular revolution a few years back, but Obama failed to provided much needed support for the freedom fighters.
A regime which the Obama administration flew pallets of cash in the dead of night, to get around international sanctions.
You know this regime as the Islamic Republic of Iran.
The Gateway Pundit is reporting: ‘Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) sent a ‘Dear Democratic Colleague” letter Sunday night stating she would be introducing a War Powers resolution this week to “limit” President Trump’s “military actions regarding Iran”. Pelosi said the resolution would set a thirty day deadline for Trump to cease hostilities unless authorized by Congress.’
Nancy, in her seemingly constantly intoxicated state, believes she is the nation’s premier leader.
TGWP went on to say “Pelosi said she was acting because Trump authorized the targeted killing of Iran Quds Force leader Major General Qassen Soleimani last Friday without consulting Congress. Pelosi called the killing of the architect of an Iranian proxy war on Americans that killed over 600 U.S. soldiers “provocative and disproportionate”’
Dear Democratic Colleague,
Last week, the Trump Administration conducted a provocative and disproportionate military airstrike targeting high-level Iranian military officials. This action endangered our servicemembers, diplomats and others by risking a serious escalation of tensions with Iran.
As Members of Congress, our first responsibility is to keep the American people safe. For this reason, we are concerned that the Administration took this action without the consultation of Congress and without respect for Congress’s war powers granted to it by the Constitution.
This week, the House will introduce and vote on a War Powers Resolution to limit the President’s military actions regarding Iran. This resolution is similar to the resolution introduced by Senator Tim Kaine in the Senate. It reasserts Congress’s long-established oversight responsibilities by mandating that if no further Congressional action is taken, the Administration’s military hostilities with regard to Iran cease within 30 days.
The House Resolution will be led by Congresswoman Elissa Slotkin. Congresswoman Slotkin is a former CIA and Department of Defense analyst specializing in Shia militias. She served multiple tours in the region under both Democratic and Republican Administrations.
I greatly appreciate the solemnity with which all of our Members are working to honor our responsibility to protect American lives and values.
Thank you for your patriotic leadership during this difficult time.
Pelosi’s resolution is expected to be similar to one filed in the Senate by Sen. Tim Kaine (D-VA) on Friday.
Trump is doing what he does best, getting the Democrats to uncloak as those who aid and support our enemies.
