Trump Drops MOAB, Promises Kept, Tillerson In Russia, Shattered

Gary Bauer
by Gary Bauer, Contributing Author:  Trump Drops MOAB - News broke just after lunch time that U.S. forces dropped a MOAB bomb (Massive Ordnance Air Blast) in Afghanistan. The bomb is also known as the "Mother Of All Bombs" for a reason -- it is the largest non-nuclear weapon in the U.S. arsenal. The bomb is so big that it has to be dropped from the back of a C-130 cargo plane.

The use of the bomb comes as U.S. and coalition forces are fighting pitched battles against entrenched Taliban and ISIS jihadists. In fact, Army Green Beret Staff Sgt. Mark De Alencar was killed Saturday in the same region where the MOAB was dropped today.

According to CNN, today's deployment "is the first time a MOAB has been used in the battlefield." Predictably, the "progressive" left is reacting in horror. One liberal House Democrat is demanding that Congress cut short its recess to return to Washington in order to repeal the authorization of force in Afghanistan.

Gen. John W. Nicholson, the top commander in Afghanistan, said that ISIS is increasingly using "bunkers and tunnels to thicken their defense. This is the right munition to reduce these obstacles and maintain the momentum of our offensive against ISIS."

Gen. Nicholson is right. Using the MOAB was the right call to avoid sending our men into booby-trapped, heavily fortified caves. Some might also say it is another example of Donald Trump keeping his promises.

And here's something else to keep in mind. Last week, President Trump put the world's thugs on notice when he launched a massive retaliatory strike against Bashar al-Assad for using chemical weapons against innocent civilians.

Today, Trump sent another message to the dictators in Pyongyang and Tehran, both of whom have massive underground military installations: This president is willing to use America's biggest bunker busting bombs!

Speaking Of Promises Kept . . .  President Trump today signed legislation repealing an Obama regulation mandating state funding of Planned Parenthood. You may recall that the Senate passed the measure only after a tie-breaking vote by Vice President Mike Pence.

Another victory for the pro-life cause by the Trump/Pence team!

Tillerson In Russia - Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, on the job for less than three months, was in Moscow yesterday for meetings with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and President Vladimir Putin. Tillerson reportedly told Putin that relations between the United States and Russia are at "a low point."

President Trump evidently agrees. At a press conference yesterday, he said, "Right now we're not getting along with Russia at all."

Contrary to the bitter lunatics on the left who cling to their conspiracy theories, the relationship is chilly precisely because Trump is not Putin's puppet. That's why he ordered strikes against Russia's Syrian ally.

Putin watched for the past eight years as Obama abandoned America's traditional leadership role in the Middle East. So when Obama refused to act in Syria, Putin moved in. But suddenly Putin is no longer dealing with a weak president eager to demonstrate his flexibility. Instead, this president has a spine and Putin got a black eye in the process for siding with a war criminal.

I'm glad President Trump ordered the strikes against the Assad regime. I am waiting for progressives to admit they were wrong about Trump wanting to appease Russia. They must have had him confused with the last president.

Shattered - A new book on the 2016 presidential race is coming out in the days ahead, but it is already making headlines. Shattered: Inside Hillary Clinton's Doomed Campaign is not a right-wing hatchet job written by conservatives who are dancing on Hillary's grave. Quite the contrary.

The book is written by former Politico reporter Jonathan Allen and Amie Parnes, the senior White House correspondent for The Hill. Allen and Parnes first teamed up in 2014 to write HRC, which one conservative pilloried as "a notable air-kiss" to Clinton and a "mushy" book in which "reporters lamely compare Hillary to rock star Bono."

Perhaps Allen and Parnes are still "feeling the Bern" because they aren't gushing over Hillary anymore!

The book provides more devastating examples about how despicable Bill and Hillary really are. We've heard it all before -- from former Secret Service agents to former associates in Arkansas. They just aren't nice people. Read this excerpt about Bill and Hillary "chewing out" their campaign staff.

Rush Limbaugh said Shattered is "a fascinating read." And he added, "The book doesn't say one thing about the Russians being responsible" for Hillary's loss or any of her troubles.

By the way, a new Rasmussen poll finds that 55% of voters believe that Trump fairly won last year's presidential election. And in spite of all the left-wing hysteria about "Russian interference," only 33% disagree.
