Overnight, students of Iran’s polytechnic university in Tehran put their lives on the line by taking to the streets to call for an end to the radical regime ruling the country. It was a massive blow to the liberal media’s false narrative that the U.S. killing of General Qasem Soleimani somehow “united” Iranians. To further prove their initials stood for Ayatollah…

Ayatollah Chris? MSNBC Host Utters Assassinate 60x Since Soleimani Hit
January 10th, 2020 10:00 AM

ABC, CBS Tout Dems Restricting Trump War Powers, NBC Notes ‘Symbolic’
January 9th, 2020 9:15 PM
Despite the fact Iran had killed a U.S. contractor in Iraq, staged an assault on the U.S. Embassy there, and launched a missile attack on U.S. forces, House Democrats were so overcome with their hatred for President Trump that they voted Thursday to restrict his powers to react to hostilities from the regime.
