After multiple Democrat Senators (including both Levin and Durbin) said that the US surge in Iraq is working, New York Democrat Senator Charles Schumer (D-NY) appears to have decided the time for treason against the USA has arrived and it’s his job to affect it and the complete destruction of our troops. The same troops who are placing themselves in harm’s way. Our troops have consistently and selflessly laid down both life and limb for the freedom of the Iraqi people. They have, also, done the same for back-biting US Senators and Congressional Representatives. One of these senators, Schumer, has now taken this viciousness to a new and unprecedented level—even for him.
On 5 September, Sen. Schumer blasted and severely denigrated our troops; troops that are also protecting this less-than-worthy-of-protection blowhard and traitor wannabee. Note: I believe he succeeded. On the surge—which again Democrats who have actually been to Iraq say is working—Schumer spat: “This is a policy of last resort! This is a policy of desperation!” Working hard on his attempt to rewrite recent history, Schumer continued his diatribe with: “And let me be clear: the violence in Anbar has gone down despite the surge, not because of the surge!” Then, in a decidedly mean-spirited, patently lying attack against our own soldiers, Schumer continued his invective with: “The lack of protection for these tribes from al Qaeda made it clear to these tribes, ‘We have to fight al-Qaeda ourselves’. It wasn’t that the surge brought peace here. It was that the warlords had to create a temporary peace here on their own. And that is because there was no one else there [US soldiers] protecting them!” No one else protecting them? What does Chucko think our brave men and women have been doing in Iraq? Apparently, Schumer would have us believe they have done and are continuing to do nothing.
Not only is what Schumer said unconscionable and treasonous but, he—himself—has become as unscrupulous as any politician I’ve ever heard. This is a blatant reminder and prime example of the depths to which some politicians will sink in order to retain their illusion of power. As Sen. Schumer has now signaled us, there is no one whom he and many of his colleagues believe cannot be scarified to the gods of greed, graft and totalitarian dominance. From his less than truthful (AKA lying) remarks, it is painfully obvious that he has decided more of our fighting men and women must be falsely accused and destroyed in order for him and his political party to achieve their increasingly dishonorable goals. Note: Selling one’s soul to the devil has never been uglier.
This is the political party—the Democrat Party—that now controls both Houses of the US Congress and the same party that is increasing its aid and comfort to the enemies of both the United States of America and all civilized societies. This Democrat Party has—for reasons only known to it and its secularist disciples—has decided that allowing the enemies of humanity to succeed will also help Democrats to win. Of course, there is a definitive problem with this fallacious thought pattern; not only is it erroneous but the Democrats (unless they convert to fundamentalist Islam) will not be allowed to survive either.
Unless you are a dyed in the wool fanatical leftist, are these really the people you want running the county—the ones attempting to lead us blindly over the thousand foot cliff while telling us we’re about to enter a shopping mall? If you can truthfully answer this question with a resounding “Yes”, your indoctrination is already complete. You may now enter the shopping mall to purchase your burqas and turbans.
