Tucker Carlson to “dumb” Trump: Drop dead

Trump is not looking for the well-being of his constituents, namely, the American people. He is looking for the well-being of the Israeli regime. As Doug Bandow of the National Interest has put it, “Donald Trump's Iran Policy Comes Down to One Word: Chaos.”


…by Jonas E. Alexis

Tucker Carlson has recently taken a political knife and cut Trump’s ideology to pieces when Trump has deliberately ordered the assassination of Iranian Quds Force commander Qassem Soleimani. “Washington has wanted war with Iran for decades,” Carlson said. “They still want it now. Let’s hope they haven’t finally gotten it.”

Carlson is right. The Israeli regime and the Jewish Neocons were pushing George W. Bush to take out Iran right after the Iraq debacle in 2003. Bush only had the chance to destroy one country, and he seemed to have passed the baton to Trump, who again is listening very closely to what the Israeli regime has been saying about Iran for decades.

Carlson continues to say that there is no benefit in perpetuating wars in the Middle East. He adds: “No one in Washington is in the mood for big-picture questions right now. Questions like: Is Iran really the greatest threat we face? And who’s actually benefiting from this? And why are we continuing to ignore the decline of our country in favor of jumping into another pointless quagmire, from which there’s no obvious exit?”[1]

Carlson has a simple message to Trump, the warmongers, and Neocons like Max Boot: “Soleimani was a bad guy. But does that make killing him ‘very simple?’ Of course not. Nothing in life, and certainly not killing is ever ‘very simple.’ Any politician who tells you otherwise is dumb or lying.”

Let it be known that not a single politician has ever fleshed out how Soleimani was able to kill “thousands” of people. It is simply a mantra, and if you tell a mantra long enough in the media, the people will end up believing it.

In any event, Trump’s defense gets really pathetic. He declared that Soleimani was caught plotting to kill more Americans and that he was even hated in Iran. This is Trump at his best:

“General Qassem Soleimani has killed or badly wounded thousands of Americans over an extended period of time, and was plotting to kill many more…but got caught! He was directly and indirectly responsible for the death of millions of people, including the recent large number of PROTESTERS killed in Iran itself.

“While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. They are not nearly as saddened as the leaders will let the outside world believe. He should have been taken out many years ago!”[2]

How does this man explain the fact that “tens of thousands” of Iranians took to the street to mourn the death of Soleimani?[3] Does Trump really believe that everyone on this planet actually lives in a matrix and simply has no access to the outside world?

But even if Trumps wants us all to believe that he was right, he is still confronted with a major problem. As Representative Elissa Slotkin, Democrat of Michigan and a former C.I.A. analyst and Pentagon official, puts it:

“What always kept both Democratic and Republican presidents from targeting Suleimani himself was the simple question: Was the strike worth the likely retaliation and the potential to pull us into protracted conflict?”[4]

And who is going to pay a big price for Trump’s dumb move? The average American and decent people in the West.

“Oil prices surged and the stock market fell after President Trump ordered the killing of Maj. Gen. Qassim Suleimani in Baghdad. On Wall Street, the stock market fell as oil prices jumped after the news of the general’s death: The price of Brent oil, the international benchmark, surged in the early hours of Hong Kong trading to nearly $70 a barrel — an increase of $3. The immediate increase in the price of oil was among the largest since an attack on a critical Saudi oil installation in September that temporarily knocked out 5 percent of the world’s supply.”[5]

Obviously Trump is not looking for the well-being of his constituents, namely, the American people. He is looking for the well-being of the Israeli regime. As Doug Bandow of the National Interest has put it, “Donald Trump’s Iran Policy Comes Down to One Word: Chaos.”[6] Perhaps Rose McGowan is right when she says:

Dear #Iran, The USA has disrespected your country, your flag, your people. 52% of us humbly apologize. We want peace with your nation. We are being held hostage by a terrorist regime.”

  1. First, Lieberman, more insane than Netanyahu (not to speak of the long-tailed cat….) ; then, Pence more insane than Trump. Hilarious stuff from you rascals, if only neither were true. Well, you and Uncle Gordie tend to put these matters a lot more pungently than I did.

  2. Soleimani is no better or worse than any american general. To suggest he is a bad man because what? He killed American servicemen?HELLO!!!Knock knock do you have anything inside your head? FFS the US should not have been in Syria in the first place AAAAANNNND We all know Iraq had nothing to do with 911 and they admitted it was a lie, the pretext that is. Gosh the brainwashing of most americans is incredible and their memories are short term and their stupidity is great to be able to not understand these simple truths. I am so incensed by the US govt BS and I just wish something could happen to make that govt just collapse shrivel up and die.

  3. The outlaws in the U.S. started all the problems with Iran in the 1950’s not Iran.
    Read about how the murderers in Israel murdered innocent victims in the 2010 Flotilla in international waters. Watch the video of former Marine Ken O’Keefe at LAX in 2016. Israel did 9/11/01. A number of Israeli thugs were caught in the act but the criminal Bush let them go. The four star generals did not lift a finger to defend this country on 9/11/01 but instead of being prosecuted they were rewarded and allowed to retire on fancy undeserved pensions. Of course they were part of the scam. The inmates have taken over America today with idiot Trump and 535 whores in Congress all doing the bidding of the outlaw country Israel. Fool trump has Iran confused with Israel. Perhaps he has Alzheimers. He had the general of the wrong country knocked off. How many innocent Palestinians, Syrians, and almost all citizens of neighboring countries have the Israelis killed, adults and children? Israel hates all their neighbors. Trump must be institutionalized before he blows up the planet for the wrong reasons. He must watch Dr. Strangelove every night. Remember that general in the moving sitting on the toilet taking a number 2? That is one of our generals! Americans have been lied to so long they don’t know truth from fiction.

  4. ” “While Iran will never be able to properly admit it, Soleimani was both hated and feared within the country. “… Hated??? We killed Iran’s Daniel Boone… this isn’t going to end well. I never thought I would agree with Rose on anything…

  5. Trump is a lying hypocrite. Not only has he provided zero proof of any alleged misdeeds by General Solemani, he ignores the constant criminal acts by Israel against Syria and most other countries over there as well as our own corrupt military being illegally in Syria for years now and even today stealing their oil! How many innocent Palestinians and their families and children have the Israelis killed and injured for life? Yet Trump murders by ambush, the most cowardly way to kill an opponent. If Trump had done the honorable thing and challenged the General to a duel, we all know who would be instantly dead. By his own cheating and avoiding the draft, he caused others to die or be injured in his place. Trump is the lowest of the low in America. All this confirms the dictum by the late Professor Howard Zinn, Ph.D.: “The jails are full of petty thieves but the grand thieves are running the country.”

  6. Strange that everyone who refuses this Central Banking scam and avoid being their debt slave is now a terrorist, while trying to escape to be robbed blind by those funny money thugs
