Withdrawing from Iran Nuclear Deal 

The Trump administration made two major foreign policy achievements this week, starting with pulling out of the Iran nuclear agreement – the deal that the Obama administration struck with the Iranian regime in 2015. For those who have forgotten what the terms of this terrible deal were, let’s recap some of the finer details:

Did you see the Iranians chanting death to America at the U.N. this week? Ed alert: “Yeah, those seem like the kind of guys I want to do business with.”

As the first half closes out, we’re talking about the release of three Americans who were detained in North Korea -something that’s undoubtedly a foreign relations victory for the President and his administration.

Confirmation of Gina Haspel 

It was finally time for the Senate confirmation of Gina Haspel, Trump’s nominee to replace Mike Pompeo as CIA Director. As predicted, Senate Democrats would try to use Haspel’s role in supervising black site interrogations of terrorists after 9/11 to block her confirmation. From Democrats like Mark Warner from Virginia and our own  illustrious Senator from California, Kamala Harris to fake Republican Susan Collins of Maine, the confirmation committee did everything they could to pigeonhole career CIA servant Haspel into calling her work for our country after 9/11 “immoral.” Ed alert: “Here’s one thing I never heard anyone ask her: ‘Ms. Haspel, can you keep us safe?’ That’s all I care about.”

Speaking of Democrats, Nancy Pelosi made a joke this week that she’ll be doing away with the Trump tax cuts if the Dems take back the house. This is why Republicans can’t stay home on June 5!

Everyone’s Mad at Jeff Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is at a point where both Democrats and Republicans are questioning his fitness. He started out the week angering Democrats with this strong statement at the U.S./Mexico border.

But on the other side of the coin, Republicans are mad at Sessions’ Department of Justice for not turning over documents related to the Clinton campaign and DNC role in creating the phony Russian dossier – and, the fact that Sessions is allowing the FBI to pass on looking at the personal phone messages between Peter Strozk and Lisa Page.
