(NationalSentinel) Generally speaking, it’s easy to tell which side of the issue Democrats are going to be on when it comes to foreign policy: The side of our adversary.
It’s been that way for decades, as evidenced by Democratic alliance with the former Soviet Union when Ronald Reagan was president, and Left-wing alliance with fascists, dictators, thugs, and Communists during the 1940s, 50s, and 60s.
In more recent years, we saw how the Obama administration literally embraced Cuba’s murderous Castro regime, and how Obama himself, with help from John Kerry, empowered Iran and its terrorism by giving it access to more than $150 billion just to make a bogus “nuclear” deal the regime was never planning to follow.
Now that Obama’s gone, other Democrats are picking up the pro-Iran mantra — not merely to stick their finger in President Donald Trump’s eye, but to empower a murderous, terrorist-sponsoring regime that is directly responsible for the deaths of American troops in the Middle East.
And former Navy SEAL and current U.S. Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas) isn’t having any of it.
On Monday, the hero SEAL team leader blasted Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) for taking Iran’s side against the Trump administration as she served as a propaganda mouthpiece for Tehran by blaming POTUS for the current increase in tensions.
“This is a shocking comment from a House Committee Chairwoman. She is literally repeating the lies of the Iranian regime. What a disgrace,” he tweeted.
“Maxine Waters’ hate for Trump runs so deep that she is willing to take Iran’s side over the word of our military,” he added.

Crenshaw did at least two tours in Iraq (he was wounded in Afghanistan, which is where he lost his eye), so he’s well aware of the operational environment there and, in particular, Iran’s activities in the region.
Being a SEAL team leader and operator, he would have the latest intel and would have been briefed on all threats in his area of responsibility.
Waters, on the other hand, would likely have difficulty finding Iran on a map.
On Thursday Iran shot down a U.S. drone that they said was illegally in their airspace. The U.S. countered that the drone had been in international waters and accused Iran of an “unprovoked attack,” and the Pentagon provided evidence proving where its drone was located when it was attacked.
But Waters’ Trump Derangement Syndrome took over and she sided with Iran.
“Trump, you get no credit for so-called stopping the strike against Iran,” Waters tweeted. “Why was the unmanned drone in Iran’s airspace? Why the surveillance? Don’t provoke and then pretend innocence.”
Unreal. Do you think she ever referred to President Obama as simply “Obama” in a tweet?
The Democrat Party truly is the most un-American party we’ve ever had, as its members continue to prove daily. It’s no wonder the president can’t work with them; they are polar opposites.
One wants to Make America Great Again and the others want to empower our enemies.
