Nikki Haley slammed the Democrats as the ‘only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani.’
“You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran. You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members. You’re not hearing China. You’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Suleimani are our Democrat leadership and our Democrat presidential candidates. No one else in the world, because they knew that this man had evil veins. They knew what he was capable of. And they saw the destruction and the lives lost based from his hands.”
Former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley blasted the Democratic Party in a Fox News interview on Monday, saying that they are the only ones mourning the loss of Iranian terrorist Qassim Suleimani.
“What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed,” Haley told Fox News’s Sean Hannity. ” They did not see this coming. They thought they could continue to do their multiple strikes.”
“You could see the ayatollah crying today, because that was his number one strategist,” Haley continued. “That was the number one guy that has literally told all of the proxies in all of these countries who to kill, when to kill, how to kill. And that guy is now gone.” More
Here’s the transcript provided by Fox News:
Don't forget to Like The Washington Sentinel on Facebook and Twitter, and visit our friends at The Republican Legion.
HANNITY: I watch this, and I’m thinking, wow, — do they want to bribe the mullahs again? The Clintons bribed Kim Jong-un. That didn’t work out. Bribing the mullahs didn’t work out.
And, by the way, there was never any place, any time inspections anyway associated with that 10-year deal that expired, for $150 billion.
To me, the Iranians have been at war with the world. They want Iranian hegemony.
Am I wrong?
HALEY: You know, I mean, you’ve got to look at the fact that the general provisions of the Iran deal were going to end in October. So, we’re going towards a time where we have to bring them to the negotiating table anyway.
But make no mistake, Sean. What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed. They did not see this coming. They thought they could continue to do their multiple strikes.
But when it got to the lives of Americans, the president is never going to allow that to happen. It happened with the contractor. When they started to threaten our diplomats at the embassy, our military personnel, the president put a stop to it.
You could see the ayatollah crying today, because that was his number one strategist. That was the number one guy that has literally told all of the proxies in all of these countries who to kill, when to kill, how to kill. And that guy is now gone.
HANNITY: And killing Americans.
HALEY: So, Iran is having to regroup and figure out, now what?
So, make no mistake. They’re shaking in their boots. They’re trying to figure this out.
HANNITY: Well —
HALEY: And I think the president showed great decisiveness, great resolve.
And I think that this was a long time coming. If you look back two years ago, I gave a speech at the U.N. on Soleimani, and talked about the threats. The president has had restraint all of this time since we gave that speech.
And I will tell you, we said then, he was not — by the entire Security Council, he was banned from leaving Iran. What was he doing in Iraq anyway?
Trying to move in.
HANNITY: Great question, yes.
What — do you agree with — listen, I have always liked General Petraeus. He’s a great general, patriot, hero in this country. He said, it’s impossible to overstate the importance of this particular action. It’s more significant than the killing of bin Laden, even the death of al-Baghdadi.
And he said Soleimani was the architect, operational commander of the Iranian effort to solidify control, the so-called Shia crescent stretching from Iran to Iraq, through Syria and Southern Lebanon.
I think that’s the reason why the Jordanians, Egyptians and Saudis now are working with the Israelis, which I don’t think anybody saw coming.
HALEY: Well, and I will tell you this. You don’t see anyone standing up for Iran.
You’re not hearing any of the Gulf members. You’re not hearing China. You’re not hearing Russia. The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.
HANNITY: That is sad.
HALEY: No one else in the world, because they knew that this man had evil veins. They knew what he was capable of. And they saw the destruction and the lives lost based from his hands.
HANNITY: What a dumb — we have been hearing, oh, he’s evil, he’s a murderer, he killed Americans, and he — it’s the number one state sponsor of terror. And they’re fighting all these proxy wars, but, oh, we don’t want to make them mad.
That’s what it sounds like to me.
HALEY: You know, and you go tell that to the 608 American families who lost a loved one.
Go tell that to the military members who lost a limb. This was something that needed to be done, and should be celebrated.
And I will tell you right now, partisan politics should stop when it comes to foreign policy. This is about America united.
We need to be completely behind the president, what he did, because every one of those countries are watching our news media right now, seeing what everyone’s saying. And this is a moment of strength for the United States. It’s a moment of strength for President Trump.
HANNITY: I think Rouhani and the mullahs, they need to go to the refineries. Just go visit. Just hang out there for a few days.
All right, Governor, Ambassador Nikki Haley, thank you for being with us.

Democrat Impeachment Manager Admits Impeachment Is All About The Election
Democrat impeachment manager Rep. Zoe Lofgren seemed to admit today that Democrats’ partisan articles of impeachment against President Trump were about the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
“Well, in that — I guess, in that sense, we did, because, if we had waited for three or four years, the election would be over,” Lofgren said. “The issue would be almost moot.”
Here’s the video:

Democrat impeachment manager Rep. Zoe Lofgren (D-CA) appeared to admit on Sunday that Democrats’ partisan articles of impeachment against President Donald Trump were about the upcoming 2020 presidential election.
“Congresswoman, you told senators this week ‘Don’t surrender to the president’s stonewalling,’” CNN’s Jake Tapper said to Lofgren. “But what do you say to those who say, that’s what exactly what the House Democrats did by not going to court to try to force subpoenas and force witnesses?”
“We did go to court, as you know,” Lofgren responded.
“But you didn’t pursue it in court,” Tapper responded. “You ultimately withdrew the cases and went to the Senate.”
“We realized we had the evidence we were going to get and that it was sufficient to prove our case,” Lofgren responded. More
She said it best: “If we waited 3 or 4 years, the Election would be over.” (Folks this means it isn’t about Servitude for the People it is about Power and to cripple our Presidents chances of Re-Election)
— Dwlbok (Text LIFE to 88022) (@Dwlbok) January 26, 2020
Yeah, we know it’s about the Democrats admitting that they are interfering in the 2020 election. Nadler said it. Schiff said it. AOC said it. Jeffries said it. Why not Lofgren, too? I really, really wish the defense team would actively destroy the case and the careers of the Democrats who played this stupid game.
So the dems are fraudulently using impeachment to interfere in an election. Hmmmm

If they have sufficient evidence why are they crying for more witnesses now? These DIMwitcrats are beyond despicable and are ABUSING their power. They have no case, never did.
— Elizabeth (@Condorian2487) January 26, 2020
Lofgren also says Dem House had the evidence they needed sufficient to prove Dems’ case & hand off to Senate. I.e., no need for for more witnesses & docs…so it’s time for Senate to render its judgment at conclusion of WH case presentation.

Joni Ernst: Within Two Hours The White House Counsel Shredded Democrats’ Case
The vice-chairman of the Senate Republican conference Sen. Joni Ernst said after the Senate impeachment trial on Saturday that President Trump’s legal team had “shredded” the Democrats’ case for impeachment in less than two hours.
“I thought today was an incredible two hours, and within two hours, I thought that the White House counsel and their team entirely shredded the case that has been presented by the House managers,” the Iowa conservative said. “What we heard today was very concise; it was full of truths and facts, as presented by the House managers’ own witnesses. It was not filled with half-truths and personal stories.”
— CSPAN (@cspan) January 25, 2020
Sen. Ernst also said after Saturday’s impeachment proceedings that she is leaning against voting for allowing additional witnesses to testify. Democrats have pushed to subpoena former National Security Advis0r John Bolton and other witnesses to testify after both sides conclude their opening arguments.
The Iowa senator said that the establishment media and the House Democrat impeachment managers had pushed a lot of “half-truths.” In contrast, Trump’s legal team presented factual evidence.
“What we saw today was factual, relevant to what is going on in the Senate, and it points out that there have been a lot of half-truths promulgated by the House managers and absolutely pushed by the media as well,” Sen. Ernst said. More
Three days of junior high drama got destroyed by adults in only 2 hours.
I stand with the White House Counsel and their team because I know President Trump DID ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG.

This is going to be such a slam dunk that the Schiff Circus will soon be seen dragging their tails, loading up in their Clown car, & heading back to the House to a weeping Speaker Pelosi, where she’ll surely connive with Schiff’s Clowns on which ‘ACME’ ideas they’ll attempt next.

Sekulow Accuses Schiff Of Taking Hamilton Quote Out Of Context
Jay Sekulow, President Trump’s personal attorney, attacked Democrats for repeating what he said was an out-of-context quote from Alexander Hamilton.
“Both Sen. [Chuck] Schumer and yesterday, as well, Congressman [Adam] Schiff, used this famous quote from Alexander Hamilton about impeachment,” Sekulow said. “It wasn’t about impeachment. It was a letter regarding policy disputes between Hamilton and Washington five years after the Constitution was adopted. So they’re not only taking the wrong law, they’re taking the wrong quotes from the founding fathers.”
One of the lawyers on President Trump’s impeachment trial defense team, Jay Sekulow, charged that Democratic members of Congress were taking a quote from Alexander Hamilton out of context as they tried to lay out the standard for removing a president from office.
Speaking to reporters after the second day of Democrats’ opening arguments, Sekulow said Thursday that the Hamilton quote, which comes from a letter he sent to George Washington as Treasury secretary in 1792, primarily discussing the national debt, was “completely out of place.” More

The American legal system has always considered a citizen Innocent until proven guilty… But now the Democrats want to completely throw out due process.
It’s definitely being misrepresented and misappropriated to conform to the agenda.

Adam Schiff wants to impeach Trump based on his opinion of the president. Several Democrats have now revealed that the reason they want impeachment is that they don’t want Trump to win the 2020 election. That is the true election tampering going on and they need to be held accountable, but I’m not holding my breath.
Dem. Adam Schiff’s 7 Biggest Lies During Impeachment Proceedings
Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff was full of lies during Senate impeachment proceedings, and Rep. Jim Jordan noted Schiff’s seven worst lies.
Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff was full of lies during his appalling segment of the Senate impeachment proceedings, and Rep. Jim Jordan pinpointed Schiff’s seven worst lies.
Jordan pointed out just how full of it Schiff is with his false testimony before the Senate.
Rep. Jordan tweeted a video of his comments to reporters following Impeachment Manager Schiff’s two hours of wild-eyed allegations against President Donald Trump.
Here are Schiff’s essential lies about the president:
1. “More than circumstantial evidence” of collusion
2. Nunes memo was false
3. FISA process was fine
4. The “Whistleblower” would testify
5. “We haven’t spoken… with the ‘Whistleblower'”
6. Parodied @POTUS’ call
7. “Mr. Z” referred to Zelensky
“But today we’re supposed to trust him?” Jordan added.
In his video, Jordan detailed how each of Schiff’s claims are “exactly wrong” – and Jordan then asked reporters how “We’re supposed to believe Adam Schiff today – everything he’s saying?”
-"More than circumstantial evidence" of collusion
-Nunes memo was false
-FISA process was fine
-The "Whistleblower" would testify
-"We haven't spoken… with the 'Whistleblower'"
-Parodied @POTUS' call
-"Mr. Z" referred to Zelensky
But today we're supposed to trust him? pic.twitter.com/NELzVp2usX
— Rep. Jim Jordan (@Jim_Jordan) January 22, 2020
“[Schiff] just talked for two hours and 15 minutes, and we’re supposed to believe everything he’s said today. In spite of that history – where seven important things he had exactly wrong,” Jordan told reporters.
“So, yeah,” Jordan continued, “when he talks about (Ambassador) Sondland, he doesn’t tell you that was all presumption. Mr. Sondland said that, when Congressman Turner asked him, under oath, at the hearing.”
“So, that’s the kind of game that they’re playing here, and, again, I think that the American people see through it all,” the Republican from Ohio concluded.
Adam Schiff is a flat out liar. About. Every. Thing.
Impeachment Drama a TV Ratings Bust
Not only has the second day of impeachment coverage lost a ton of viewers, but many networks aren’t even bothering to air it.
Well, impeachment sure isn’t doing the broadcast networks any good. Not only has the second day of coverage lost a ton of viewers, but many networks aren’t even bothering to air it at all.
According to the ratings services, 11 million viewers turned in on Thursday to watch the coverage as Democrats continued to lie their asses off at every turn. But that was off 2.8 million from Wednesday.
As to the Daily Mail reported:
The Nielsen ratings data showed the number of viewers who engaged with the trial fell short of the roughly 13.8 million viewers who tuned in last November for the first day of the House of Representatives impeachment inquiry.
Tuesday’s figures covered 4.5 hours of daytime coverage across six networks that aired live, including Walt Disney Co’s ABC, ViacomCBS Inc’s CBS, Comcast Corp’s NBC and MSNBC, AT&T Inc’s CNN and Fox Corp’s Fox News.
The NFL usually gets about 15 million viewers per game, as an example, and football has fallen in numbers, too. so, this is a big blow to the Democrats.
The Democrats had been hoping to galvanize the country to rise up to support impeachment or at least vote Trump out in 2020.
But it seems clear that the TV networks — as left-wing as they are — aren’t even that into the impeachment gambit.
Most of them haven’t even been showing it.
As the Associated Press reported:
The first night of arguments in favor of President Donald Trump’s impeachment before the U.S. Senate was judged not ready for prime time by many of the nation’s television executives.
ABC, CBS and NBC all stuck with regularly scheduled programs like “Chicago Med,” “Criminal Minds” and “Modern Family” Wednesday evening instead of showing the House managers’ evening session at the impeachment trial. That lasted about two hours, 15 minutes.
CNN and MSNBC carried the trial in full. Fox News Channel, after showing Rep. Adam Schiff speak for about a half hour, interrupted for a story about a child support case involving former Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter, and never returned.
Even two PBS stations in the New York area showed science programming and “Antiques Roadshow” instead of the trial Wednesday evening. PBS said it gave its local stations the option to show the trial or not.
Yep. Even the liberal TV networks knew better than to bet their ratings on this fiasco.
Impeachment seems to be a big loser for the Democrats.
Angry Dad Confronts Warren On Student Loan Forgiveness: ‘Can I Have My Money Back?’
A dad who paid for his daughter’s education confronted Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren over student loan forgiveness: ‘Can I have my money back?’
“So you’re gonna pay for people who didn’t save any money, but those of us who did the right thing get screwed?”
A Father confronts @SenWarren
Father : My daughter is in school, I saved all my money just to pay student loans Can I have my money back?
Warren: of course not
Father: so you want to help those who don't save any money and the ones that do the right thing get screwed? pic.twitter.com/EY8M57tj9F

The father of a college student was seen confronting Democratic Massachusetts Sen. Elizabeth Warren about her plan to cancel student loan debt in a video that went viral earlier this week.
The dad chastised Warren over her plan, and got especially heated after the senator and 2020 presidential candidate told him he could not get the money back that he saved to pay for his daughter’s school. (RELATED: Colleges And Universities Are Creating A Lost Generation Of Americans)
“My daughter is in school. I saved all my money. Am I gonna get my money back?” the dad asked.
“Of course not,” Warren replied. More
Twitter chimes in:

Florida Voters Dismiss Impeachment While Mocking Schiff & Nadler
Florida voters dismissed impeachment while mocking Adam Schiff as Jerry Nadler “as Abbott and Costello.”
Voters in Florida are continuing to show their support for the president amid the ongoing Senate impeachment trial, with one voter warning that history will remember “this House” and “this speaker” for “the travesty they’ve done to this country.”
Trump supporters reacted to the first day of the Senate impeachment trial and continued to show their steadfast support for the president.
“How will history view this time in America,” a Fox News reporter asked a voter in Jupiter, Florida, who said history will remember the president and his family for their “sacrifices” and “what he has done for this country.”
“They’re also going to remember this House, this speaker, for what the travesty they’ve done to this country, the damage that they’ve done to this country, and the harm across the world. They will be remembered,” she said to applause.
“After what was said yesterday, we all heard some of the things that were said in the proceedings, you get the screenshot of Schiff and Nadler together, and you just can’t help but look at the two of them standing next to one another and think ‘that’s the Democrats’ answer to Abbott and Costello,’” another joked.
Fox News also spoke to a Trump supporter who immigrated from Mexico, who said that the Democrats’ impeachment effort is embarrassing the U.S.
It’s great to see Legal Immigrants loving America and fighting for her.
— Mary Fowler 555⭐️⭐️⭐️ (@Merryflower33) January 22, 2020
“It’s an embarrassment to try to impeach the best president ever. I mean his accomplishments are just huge,” she said, citing the low unemployment rate and his efforts to halt illegal immigrants from entering the country.
“I hope all the Republican senators stand strong.”
We are a laughing stock, because of the Democratic party, who is trying to do something illegal, when they know they can’t and the American people know there lies, leaks and dirty politics, with massive corruption!
