Iran continues to threaten retaliation against the United States for killing Iranian General Qassem Soleimani.
The Iranian Foreign Minister, Mohammad Javad Zarif, has been leading the anti-American charge. The Foreign Minister has been threatening the United States, and President Trump isn’t having any of it.
In response to his threats, the President has denied Zarif entry into the United States to speak at the United Nations.
The United Nations is a joke of an organization that condemns nations like Israel but allow authoritarian countries to have a seat on the Human Rights Panel.
Zarif was set to speak to the United Nations in support of the UN General Charter.
The UN is a joke, and it is about time we had a serious discussion about ending our involvement with the United Nations. It is a worthless organization.
President Trump should kick the UN out of New York and turn the UN building into a new Trump hotel.
That would really trigger the Left.
The Iranian foreign minister tweeted, “While U.S. displays utter contempt for UN Charter & its catastrophic adventurism encourages extremism and terror, tomorrow we’ll host Tehran Dialogue Forum & discuss ways of achieving regional security, incl Hormuz Peace Endeavor.”

The United States causes “extremism and terror?” Really?
Iran is the single greatest state sponsor of terrorism in the region—possibly the world—and he dares to condemn the United States who defend the region against terrorism?
Al Jazeera reported, “Zarif wanted to attend a meeting of the Security Council on Thursday on the topic of upholding the UN Charter. The meeting and Zarif’s travel had been planned before the escalation in tensions between Washington and Tehran.
The Security Council meeting would have given Zarif a global spotlight to publicly criticize the US for killing Soleimani.
Iran’s ambassador to the UN, Majid Takht Ravanchi, has described the killing of Soleimani as “an obvious example of state terrorism and, as a criminal act, constitutes a gross violation of the fundamental principles of international law, including, in particular … the Charter of the United Nations.”
The media continue to the dirty work of the Iranian regime. They parrot the same propaganda that comes out of Tehran.
These so-called journalists hate Trump so much, they are willing to paint a rosy picture of the elimination of an American-killing terrorist.
The Washington Free Beacon highlighted a few such instances. They included:
- NPR had reporters on the ground covering the “historic day” and attempting to dispel claims that the grief on display in the streets of the Iranian capital was in any way “coerced” by the authoritarian regime.
- Michael Barbaro of the New York Times highlighted the “amazing images and audio” from the NPR team. Several hours earlier, Barbaro posted a bizarre podcast interview with Times reporter Helene Cooper in which Cooper lamented that the U.S. military was “tragically … very good” at killing people.
- ABC News’s Martha Raddatz donned a (mandatory) headscarf and walked among the “massive and emotional” crowds of mourners. She declared that the Iranian people were “united against America
- The Associated Press published a touching piece on Ayatollah Ali Khamenei’s “rare display of emotion” at the funeral of the terrorist general “with whom he shared a deep bond.” The AP noted that the Iranian despot’s “voice cracked under the weight of the moment” as he “cried openly” while mourning the death of his friend.
How touching. The evil, genocidal, American-hating Ayatollah displayed emotion for his fellow American-killing friend.
These people are seriously disturbed.
Undoubtedly by the time this piece is posted, the media will be criticizing the Trump administration for not allowing the Iranian foreign minister to speak at the United Nations.
President Trump was right to do so.
