Iran protests

Trump and Iran -- Leading from the front

Newt Gingrich, Fox News

President Trump represents a remarkably different view of reality. He believes weakness begets weakness. He believes bad regimes are bad. He believes leaders look for opportunities and move aggressively and courageously to advance their vision of the world. He believes America is big enough and strong enough to provide real leadership.

This time, we will not be silent on Iran

Vice President Mike Pence, Washington Post

We stand with the proud people of Iran because it is right, and because the regime in Tehran threatens the peace and security of the world. That is the essence of American leadership, and as the people of Iran now know, the United States is leading on the world stage for freedom once again.

Iran Protests Expose Mainstream Media as Reactionary, Not Liberal

Roger L. Simon, PJ Media

The Iran situation today is yet more evidence that liberalism as we knew it, or thought we knew it, no longer exists. It is now just an angry stew of power-hungry Trump hate (or disdain for whoever they think their conservative adversaries are). Ideals mean nothing. Freedom means nothing, as long as your side wins. What men and women of principle! Perhaps we should call them what they really are -- reactionaries.
