URGENT! Pelosi Readies Gift to Tehran

Jan 9, 2020

Led by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, Democrats are poised today to tie President Donald Trump's hands in the defense of America.

The president has shown admirable restraint in the face of outrageous Iranian provocations, but he must be free to act in our nation's defense.

Yet less than 36 hours after the world's most malign state sponsor of terror fired 16 ballistic missiles at U.S. soldiers inside Iraq, Speaker Pelosi is bringing a War Powers Resolution to a House vote.

Its purpose is to handcuff the president in America's defense and declares:

"Congress hereby directs the President to terminate the use of United States Armed Forces to engage in hostilities in or against Iran or any part of its government or military."

What a gift to Tehran!

Because the vote is just hours away, I'm asking you to send a message to vulnerable moderate Democrats. Tell them to vote "NO!" on this dangerous and misguided move to handcuff the president in the defense of America.

One lonely and prominent Democrat just spoke out in support of the president. See below and act now by sending your fax! –Mat

Joe Lieberman is probably the one Democrat on the national stage praising "Trump's order to take out Qassem Soleimani [as] morally, constitutionally and strategically correct."

A former U.S. senator from Connecticut and Al Gore's presidential running mate in 2000, Lieberman rejects the idea that the president needs to ask Congress before striking an imminent threat:

The claim by some Democrats that Mr. Trump had no authority to order this attack without congressional approval is constitutionally untenable and practically senseless. Authority to act quickly to eliminate a threat to the U.S. is inherent in the powers granted to the president by the Constitution.

It defies common sense to argue that the president must notify Congress or begin a formal process of authorization before acting on an imminent threat.

But that's exactly what the Pelosi-led House Democrats are about to do today. In just hours, Pelosi is bringing to the House floor a War Powers Resolution to tie President Trump's hands—"to limit the President's military actions regarding Iran," as she said.

It's a foolish and dangerous move to thwart President Trump from fulfilling his constitutional duty to safeguard our nation as America's commander-in-chief.

At the very time that America is under threat from a murderous, radical Islamic regime--one which constantly threatens "Death to America"--Democrats want to handcuff the President and imperil our nation's security.

That's why I'm asking you to join many others in sending a clear and unequivocal message. Help me defeat this reckless and misguided Democratic War Powers Resolution by telling moderate and vulnerable Democrats to vote "NO!"

And because the vote is today—in just hours—I'm asking you to act right away. Send your fax now!

+  +  Trump derangement endangers Americans

Speaker Pelosi is attacking the president for a "provocative and disproportionate military airstrike targeting high-level Iranian military officials." But the attack killed a brutal and bloodthirsty terrorist who was about to attack even more Americans.

Forced to choose between Trump and a regime pledged to America's destruction, Democrats are targeting our duly elected president!

And now they want to tie his hands and stop him from defending you and me!!

Please send your fax now to key House members. Tell vulnerable Democrats in districts carried by Trump to vote "NO!" on Speaker Pelosi' dangerous and misguided War Powers Resolution.

Thank you for standing for freedom and expressing your patriotic love for America!

P.S. Yesterday, the president declared: "The civilized world must send a clear and unified message to the Iranian regime: Your campaign of terror, murder, mayhem will not be tolerated any longer."

But led by Speaker Pelosi, House Democrats are poised to send Tehran the exact opposite message! Act now to send your fax telling key House members to vote "NO!" on the dangerous and misguided War Powers Resolution!
