Vermonters, we need you to do better than this guy
By Jon Dougherty
(TNS) Voters in Vermont who have returned Bernie Sanders to Congress year after year after year have done a bigger disservice to American than the lunatics in California who keep electing the likes of Dianne Feinstein, Adam Schiff, and Nancy Pelosi.
Vermonters for Bernie are worse because they continue to elect an avowed Communist to serve a country with a form of government 180 degrees the opposite.
In fact, Vermonters were sending Commie Bernie to DC when the Cold War was still being waged between the U.S. and the USSR, despite the fact that they knew he honeymooned in Moscow in the 1970s, for crying out loud.
That said, it’s no wonder this seditious so-and-so hates his own country so much that he openly propagandizes for our enemies, providing them ‘aid and comfort,’ if you will.
On Wednesday, Sanders claimed on PBS that the only reason President Donald Trump designated al Quds Force Gen. Qassem Soleimani a “terrorist” was so he could “assassinate” him.
Bernie Sanders suggested the U.S. only labeled Soleimani a terrorist to “assassinate” him, setting a bad “precedent.”

“Look, when you go around assassinating leadership in governments, you are setting a precedent which says to any country on earth, ‘Hey, all we gotta do is name these people terrorists, call them what you want, and we can assassinate them,’” Sanders ridiculously claimed.
But to Commie Bernie, it’s okay if America’s enemies “assassinate” anyone they want, which, by the way, in the case of Soleimani, included hundreds of American soldiers.
In November 2015, CNS News reported:
Almost 200 American troops were killed by Iranian-supplied armor-penetrating weapons during the Iraq war, according to declassified Pentagon data made public for the first time on Wednesday.
“According to the [U.S.] Central Command, at least 196 U.S. service members were killed in Iraq by Iranian-made explosive-formed penetrators (EFPs) from 2003 to 2011,” Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) said during a Senate Judiciary subcommittee hearing, citing the declassified portion of a report provided to his office. Cruz said that number was being made public for the first time.
Cruz also noted that U.S. Marine Gen. Joseph Dunford, who was serving as the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, testified during his confirmation hearing the previous month that as many as 500 U.S. troops had been killed by Iran-supplied weapons or, at the time, roughly 14 percent of American KIA casualties. And that number, of course, does not include troops wounded and maimed by Iran-supplied weapons.
Dunford specifically “attributed responsibility for those deaths to the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps–Qods Force and its commander, Maj. Gen. Qassem Soleimani,” CNS News reported.
There’s that. But since we’re on the record here, that’s not all to this incredibly treasonous statement by Commie Bernie. To be sure, the only reason that Soleimani was ever off the U.S. terrorist list was thanks to another act of treason, this one from a president: Barack Obama.
Qassem Suleimani, the head of the elite Quds Force in Iran’s Revolutionary Guards, fully deserves his reputation as one of the world’s leading terrorist masterminds.
For a decade or more he has been the driving force behind an array of Iranian-sponsored terrorist groups, from Hizbollah to Hamas, which have orchestrated a reign of terror throughout the Middle East.
Defense writer Con Coughlin noted further that not only did Soleimani’s handiwork lead to the deaths of British troops fighting in Iraq as well, but that he “was reported to have trained the Taliban” how to make IEDs that killed American troops in Afghanistan.
So, he continued, “you can imagine my amazement when, leafing through the more obscure annexes of President Barack Obama’s ‘historic’ deal with Iran (page 86 of the annex, to be precise) I found that Mr. Soleimani — as the White House no doubt now refers to him – has been granted an amnesty and taken off the list of proscribed Iranians – together with a number of senior members of the Revolutionary Guards.”
In other words, Obama agreed to let this scumbag off the hook for the years and years of terrorism he spread throughout the region, to include the deaths of American soldiers and those of our allies.
Commie Bernie, though, wants to criticize Trump for taking him out — not Obama for giving him a pass.
No way we can let this schmuck slither his way into the White House. #TrumpPence2020
