After the U.S. government took out Iranian military commander Qasem Soleimani last week, neoconservatives are hungry for further escalation with Iran.
Of those calling for increased pressure is former UN Ambassador and South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley.
On the day of Soleimani’s death, Haley tweeted, “Qassem Soleimani was an arch terrorist with American blood on his hands. His demise should be applauded by all who seek peace and justice. Proud of President Trump for doing the strong and right thing. @realDonaldTrump”

On Sean Hannity’s show on Monday, December 6, 2020, Haley continued sounding off on Soleimani’s death.
What the president did left the Iranian regime completely flat-footed,” Haley stated. “They did not see this coming. They thought they could continue to do their multiple strikes. But when it got to the lives of Americans, the president is never going to allow that to happen.”
She added, “The only ones that are mourning the loss of Soleimani are our Democrat leadership, and our Democrat presidential candidates.”
Haley was gushing about Soleimani’s death, other observers were quick to point out a potentially larger agenda that Haley is pushing.
John Durant, the author of the Paleo Manifesto, reminded his followers on January 6, 2020 of the potential conflict of interest that Haley would be in by advocating for further escalation in Iran.
He tweeted, “I don’t want to hear anyone on Boeing’s board pushing for war.”

Durant is referring to Haley joining the board of directors of aerospace company Boeing in 2019.
Boeing has built a reputation for being an integral part of the military-industrial complex.
The multinational company has recently come under fire for crashes of their 737 MAX airliners that resulted in the deaths of hundreds of people.
It’s no secret that Haley is playing the long game by placing herself in the spotlight so that she can have the leg up on the competition during the 2024 presidential elections.
Given her role at Boeing, Haley would be delighted to maintain America’s global democratic crusades abroad.
President Trump should completely ignore anything Haley says and stick to the restrained foreign policy principles that won him the 2016 elections.
Merrick Garland Suggests that Getting Rid of Lawsuit Protections is Not a Second Amendment Violation
Garland as AG will be a disaster for the right to bear arms.
If Merrick Garland is nominated as Attorney General, the Second Amendment is in big trouble.
Based on his comments at a Senate hearing on February 22, 2021, Garland made a suggestion that the repeal of lawsuit protections for gun manufacturers is not unconstitutional.
AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News reminded his readers that President Joe Biden campaigned on a platform of repealing the Protection of Lawful Commerce in Arms Act (PLCAA), which shielded lawful gun manufacturers from lawsuits.
In a previous Breitbart News report, Biden spoke at an MSNBC forum in 2019 alongside gun control organizations such as March for Our Lives where he expressed his support for gun manufacturers to be subject to lawsuits.
At the speech, Biden suggested that the PLCC be repealed. He declared, “No other outfit in history has gotten this kind of protection” and asserted that the legal actions would bring about “change overnight.”
In a subsequent occasion on February 7, 2020, Breitbart News covered Biden’s remarks to a New Hampshire crowd, in which he stated that it was a “mistake” to shield firearms manufacturers from lawsuits. He continued, “The first thing I’m going to do as president is work to get rid of that.”
Later that month, Breitbart News recalled how Biden called out gun manufacturers at a South Carolina rally and boasted, “I’m going to take you down.”
According to a report by The Salt Lake Tribune, Utah Senator Mike Lee asked Garland about his views on removing protections for gun manufacturers. Garland responded, “I have not thought myself deeply about this. I don’t think it raises a Second Amendment issue.”
When he was questioned if he is in favor of Biden’s plans to ban so-called “assault weapons”, Garland responded, “Where there is room under the law for the president’s policies to be pursued, then I think the president is entitled to pursue them.”
Biden’s track record as a gun control proponent is well-documented. From his support of gun-free zones at schools to the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, Biden is Gun Control Inc.’s guy. With Democrats in control of the House and the Senate, there will most certainly be attempts to ram gun control down our throats. If they can’t beat us legislatively, they will most certainly use the courts to undermine the Second Amendment. Pro-gun organizations should be ready to lawyer up and use whatever means possible to keep courts from destroying our rights.
