Qaseem Is Dead

Trump greased the commander of Iran’s Quds Force and terrorist mastermind Qaseem Soleimani. Jon invites Kurt Schlichter to spike the football in the mullahs’ face, propose next steps, and ask why the media and Democrats are rooting for the bad guys. Kurt has authored several books, writes for Townhall Media, and hosts his own podcast, “Unredacted.”

The intro/outro song of the week is “The Queen Is Dead” by The Smiths. And to listen to all the music featured on The Conservatarians this year, subscribe to our Spotify playlist!

    Jon, please fix the title: It looks like you are saying that The Queen is Dead.” Please use the full name of “Qaseem Soleimani,” not just his first name.

    It’s an intentional reference to one of the greatest albums ever made.

    Relentlessly and delightfully savage. I love it!

    I like the discussion on training dictators.

    Happy New Year Mr. Gabriel!
    I’m sorry to say, but your show has yet to reach the heights of quality attained during Mr. Miller’s time. Is there anyway you can bring him back? Biweekly would be great, if not weekly.

    He’s doing his own thing now, but he’s always welcome back!

    You know it was Steeze that brought me here, but am definitely a fan of Schlichter, too. This was as fun as I thought it’d be. If Kurt became more regular, no complaints at all. Happy New Year, Chief.

    Kurt Schlichter: “Those guys don’t put competent people around them, they put obedient clods. ‘Congratulations on a great victory, General!’ *THWACK!*”

    Kurt Schlichter, meet Chancellor Gowron.

    Chancellor, this is Kurt Schlichter.

    I would like to make another contribution:

    Clinton: “We can’t kill that guy, the Iranian mullahs might get mad at us! Suck harder, Monica!”

    Obama: “We can’t kill that guy, the Iranian mullahs might get mad at us! We’ll send them palettes of cash instead, at night so the reporters won’t see it. Oops!”

    Trump: “Kill ‘im.”

    I hear a lot of pearl clutching from Tucker. Part of the reason why our “endless Middle East wars” have been so costly in blood and treasure is because of evil men like Soleimani.

    I’d like to know why he wasn’t taken off the battlefield years ago, when even more Americans’ lives could have been saved.

    Another part of the problem, of course, is pearl-clutching from people like Tucker whenever the US wants to do, starts to do, or actually does something serious.

    Loved it. We should have an Army Navy podcast every month, at min after every military action.

    Good thing they said A. Herring, not E. Herring, or you’d still be at it! :-)

    No offense to Stephen Miller, but Jon is doing fine with the new format, I think.
