As someone who served in the military and who loves his country, I am astounded at today’s Democratic Party nationally and in California.

Today’s Democratic Party acts against the national security interests of the United States and even gives billions of dollars to our nation’s enemies.

Not one of Tracy’s Democrat letter writers — Art Caya, Mickey McGuire, Robin Cole, James Nelson, etc. — has raised a voice to complain about Barack Obama shipping $100 billion to Iran , the world’s leading terrorist nation and a country at war with the U.S. for 40 years.

In 1983, Iran killed 241 U.S. Marines and 58 French peacekeepers with twin truck bombs in Beirut. Over the years, Iran, through its top terror-master, Imad Fayez Mugniyeh, has kidnapped Americans, hijacked U.S. aircraft and blown up U.S. embassies. Iran also helped kill more than 1,000 U.S. troops with improvised explosive devices in Iraq.

Under an Obama-led, appeasement-oriented deal with Iran, the U.S. shipped $100 billion to Iran and the leaders of Iran were supposed to refrain from working on ballistic missiles until 2023. So much for Obama and his deal as Iran showed off a new surface-to-surface ballistic missile in February.

Now to highlight the absolute mendacity of today’s Democratic Party, including Rep. Josh Harder, let’s consider the $25 billion border wall that President Trump wants to build.

Democrats like Harder say there’s no problem at America’s southern border even though 157 border patrol agents have died through the years and in 2017 border patrol agents arrested illegal immigrants in more than 2,000 homicide cases, and for nearly 12,000 sexual assaults.

Today’s Democrat politicians are fine with giving terrorists $100 billion, but they fight President Trump like mad dogs over $25 billion to protect our southern border and border patrol agents from MS-13 gangsters, drug smugglers, human traffickers and others. This is shameful.
