Fact Check: Soleimani Personally Taunted Trump With His Plans To Attack Americans

(Liberty Bell) – Before Qasem Soleimani was taken out in a US military airstrike on Thursday like he ought to have been years ago, the Iranian military general and terrorist leader repeatedly taunted President Donald Trump, even attempting to engage him in a meme war.

It all reportedly began back in July of 2017, when Iranian President Hassan Rouhani issued a warning in response to pressure from the US:

“[Americans] must understand that war with Iran is the mother of all wars and peace with Iran is the mother of all peace. … [D]o not play with the lion’s tail, because you will regret it eternally,” he reportedly said in a speech to diplomats in Tehran, according to Biz Pac Review.

POTUS responded in typical fashion:

Enter Solemani.

Three days later, in a speech in the Iranian city of Hamedan, he referred to POTUS’ “idiotic comments on Twitter” and warned that “you may start the war, but we will be the ones to determine its end.”

(Not a quote that aged well.)

“[I]t has been over a year since Trump became U.S. president, but that man’s rhetoric is still that of a casino, of a bar. He talks to the world in the style of a bartender or a casino manager,” he added in what is perhaps deeply offensive in Iran but is clearly lost on an American audience as it hardly seems an insult at all.

Far more sinister, however, he seemed to suggest that there were sleeper cells hidden in the US.

“Let me tell you, Mr. Trump the gambler… Let me tell you… Know that we are near you, in places that don’t come to your mind,” he said. “We are near you in places that you can’t even imagine. We are a nation of martyrdom. We are the nation of Imam Hussein. Ask around. We have endured many hardships.”

So…he started a meme war. Scary.

“That same month, he shared with his nearly 70,000 Instagram followers an image of the White House exploding, which was later archived by the Middle East Media Research Institute,” The Washington Post reported Friday.

“The poster appeared to have been taken from the 2013 film ‘Olympus Has Fallen,’ and doctored so that Soleimani stands in front of the inferno with a walkie-talkie in his hand.”

Look:

The Middle East Media Research Institute reported at the time that Soleimani had an impressive 69,000 followers and 710 posts.

As of December 4th, 2020, just one day after he was taken out by a US airstrike, his account remained active, although most of the previous posts had been removed and had only about 96 followers.

But back in 2018, four months after the Iranian military official posted a member of the White House exploding, the president posted his now-famous “Game of Thrones”-style sanctions warning to the Islamic republic.

Solemani responded in kind with his own “Game of Thrones”-styled meme.

The president may not have taken the bait, but Solemani had clearly declared (meme) war.

  1. The ENEMY WITHIN is a MUCH Greater threat.They are all exposing themselves.Take note! And don’t forget the 18 Govnrs wanting more immigrants!The time is upon us.You are destined to be on one side of the fence or the other.There will be no fence sitters.Your children,as dumb as they are,will reap what you sow.Remember they are products of the democrat “education” system.God bless Pres Trump and God save America.

  2. Churchill once said that wars take place when one side misjudges just how powerful they are, when compared to the other side… one general just found out how correct Churchill was, even though that was decades ago.

  3. Democrats have already declared, if taking down Trump destroys the country, so be it. Let’s take them down. Next target, step up please, lets get this over and done. Nuking Iran would also be a GREAT option. Then Democrats need to be forced to clean up the mess that they created.

  4. For democrats is more important their socialist,communist, globalist , ideology, that their own American People and Our Grant Country, democrats prefer protect Iran and all socialist communist countries, A VOTE FOR DEMOCRATS IS A VOTE FOR A NEW AMERICAN SOVIET UNION!

  5. I was wondering if we could donate money so President Trump could build the wall to annex California, Oregon, Washington and a few states on the East Coast. They are nothing but thorns in our sides. Think what we could save. Especially the billions they are giving to illegal aliens.

  6. Soleimani planned and lead terrorist attacks on US and allied installations, responsible for the deaths of thousands of US servicemen and women, and responsible for failed plots against targets within the US homeland, including D.C. Not only has the Iranian government not denounced his actions, they praise him and embraced him as an Iranian government official. In other words, these were not actions by an independent terrorist faction. These were direct ACTS OF WAR by a recognized official of the Iranian government. Soleimani (and therefore Iran directly) are responsible for 17% of US Soldier deaths in Iraq since 2003, during two previous administrations. How are we not already at war with Iran? This man commits acts of war as a representative of the Iranian government, yet President Obama hosts him in the White House? Instead of recognizing a declaration of war, Democrats protect Iran from Israel and enable Iran with a path to nuclear arms, and enable more of their terrorist acts with pallets of money? Now the Democrats want to continue to protect Iran by attempting to render our Commander In Chief impotent in responding to further acts of war by Iran through legislation in the House? To me, this is all very fishy and stinks to high treason. I am now very curious just who is in Iran’s pocket; who’s been “paid to play”? Why are we not investigating THESE treasonous shenanigans?

  7. Lou: I agree and if POTUS gave the House a chance to deliberate on whether to take this guy out, it would have been all over the media – the House members can’t keep their mouths shut. The Mass Murderer would then have known what was going to happen and he would have been able to escape justice. So Yes, good job President Trump!

  8. Destroying Iraq was a mistake, when they were actually keeping Iran in check. Now since Obama pulled out our troops from Iraq too soon, they are overrun with 100,000 Iranian Soldiers. But they think they should kick our soldiers out. We should just leave the whole area to destroy itself.

  9. Have you noticed lately,that these bad people are being taken down without any mistakes by our intelligence community because we are not leaking what we are going to do. Thank you Mr President for not releasing information until after the fact. And only trusting those who can keep their mouth shut.

    • The only sure way to muslim heaven is to be killed while killing as many unbelievers as possible at the same time.

  10. Why is everybody so eaten up with guilt about this man’s death. He actively sought to kill those he perceived as his enemies. The tables turned on him and he got killed. All is fair in love and war.

    • I’m not eaten up with guilt about Soleimai’s death in fact I am celebrating! YOU GO PRESIDENT TRUMP!

  11. Better check all those emails. Where did all the taxpayer money go that O gave them. You sure it didn’t get back in the hands of the DNC like laundering was done in Ukraine.The demos are protecting something.

    • FINALLY……
      a President who stands up and works for “we the people!”
      a President who fights for us EVERY SINGLE DAY!
      a President who truly LOVES AMERICA!
      a President who is fearless!
      a President who loves JESUS!

      GOD BLESS DONALD J. TRUMP AND GOD BLESS AMERICA!

      If you hate socialism……vote 2020!

      TRUMP/PENCE 2020!

  12. “As of December 4th, 2020, just one day after he was taken out by a US airstrike,…” should read “As of January 4th, 2020,…”. Thank you Liberty Bell.

  13. What a bunch of loser right wing Christian Republican postings.
    Trouble is what you’re going to get from you idiot president.

    • They’re the ones who will be in trouble if they try to attack our country! What was President Trump supposed to do Low info libtard?! Allow those devils to murder more americans?! Now your queen is vowing to try and stop our president from protecting us and has decided to protect those terrorists! This means the lives of us including you libtards are in danger as well! They don’t care about you only their lust for power and wealth! Think they care if you supporters get killed?! Think again! But the president you hate is the one who fights to protect you!

    • I think the idiot is you. You are a Tump hating jerk with zero understanding of what is happening in the world. Educate yourself.

    • Why don’t you move to Iran so your ideology is matched to your ignorance and boldness. I’ll call you when the B-2 bombers are on their way to blow Tehran into the Black Sea dumbass!

    • I’m sick of protecting the libtards. Let them have California, Oregon, Washington, & the Northeast. We’ll take the rest. Most of the military that protects their sorry arse’s is the son’s and daughters of Repubs and Independents anyway. I know many, many folks who no longer associate with them because of their radical “leftarded” views and actions. It’s all of you liberal “bag-o-nuts” that have divided our country SO BAD that putting it back together is impossible. It is approaching “Civil War” times. May whom-ever Creator you believe in, help put “Humpty Dumpty” back together again SOON.

    • Talk is cheap when it’s time to put up or shut up. Someone give the Iranian General a hand, he lost his in a fireworks accident. Poor Ali Baba and his forty queiffs.

    • I love the trouble he’s given us so far. My 401(k) is soaring, unemployment numbers are lowest in decades, the US embassy is in Jerusalem, conservative judges (who’s rulings reflect what the law says, not what they’d like it to mean) are being appointed in record numbers, our NATO allies are finally starting to pay their fair share (i.e., what they had promised to pay all along but never did until now), manufacturing jobs are returning to the US, NAFTA is being replaced with USMCA, which provides much more benefit to the US, regulations which were stifling small business have been removed, income taxes were lowered, etc., etc. Please, more troubles like these.

  14. I am in support of what this president has done , lets rid this world of bad people ,and haters of our country !yes our country , (AMERICA ) Who tries to help all we can in the world .

  15. Send all Democrats who disagree with what just happened to go live in Iran; and oh…those Hollywood’s useful idiots too and see how many of them will want to return to the United States.

  16. The Democrats are all worked up about the military option that just played out. A man responsible for the deaths of at least 500 U. S . Military Personnel is gone. Hope your in Hell being raped by 72 virgins. So now let’s do the math. Because well math is a constant. An Iranian General in Iraq . Hmm now I believe those two countries had a little war that lasted over a decade and killed about a million people on both sides. The two countries literally HATE EACH OTHER. Imagine that Muslim killing Muslim. So ask the question why was he there. Nothing to really sight see. Iraq is Not a great vacation destination. Better ways to use your frequent flyer miles. There wasn’t a democratic debate taking place there for him to be sweet talked by Biden, Waren or Beto. He wasn’t visiting some holy shrine. That S O B was There up to something, Iike planning attacks on the US embassy or something far worse that would have killed more US military personnel. They’ve been begging for a war since Carter failed to punish them and embolden them for kidnapping 52 US citizens. Only thing that came close since embassy debacle was Hillary’s Syria debacle. They keeping asking for a Jihad I say give them one. Apparently they didn’t see what happens to Osama Bin Laden or Saddam Hussein. End it once and for all and send a message to the rest of the Arab wannabes.

  17. The President of Iran said that “war with Iran is the mother of all wars.” Where have we heard that rhetoric from before? The war with Iraq was short, it ended quickly, and it didn’t too well for the former government. Finally, Saddam Hussein didn’t end in front of a firing squad; he was hanged and in the process they broke his neck. Not a good ending.

    The General noted that “it has been over a year since Trump became U.S. president, but that man’s rhetoric is still that of a casino, of a bar. He talks to the world in the style of a bartender or a casino manager.” He has had to listen to idiot bar tenders who come from his home area of Queens, and he has learned how to put them all in their place. So he decided you were next; but he didn’t mean to break your neck.

  18. The democrats are complaining that the president is starting a war, kicking a hornets nest. Over 500 Americans have died at the hands of this murderer, it seems very obvious to me that we are already at war and this guy is clearly an enemy! If I lost a son or daughter to this guy I certainly would feel that way. If we don’t have a military to protect us from these evil people than why have one at all. Men and women joined the services to protect this country and we need to let them do it. The democrats are the weakest, softest people on the face of the planet and god forbid what will happen if they take power again.

    • I’m sorry to all the families who have lost friends or loved ones serving in the military. Most American Patriots signed up to protect our nation from invaders both foreign and domestic but never realized domestic invaders have used their patriotism in an effort to create a globalist government.

      We love our soldiers just as other countries love theirs. Is there any wonder why so many countries might take action against the US after their families have been impacted by drones, missiles and attacks on their way of life?

      It is wrong for anyone to force their way of life upon someone else. U fortunately our own government has been more guilty of this than any other worldwide.

      It’s time for all good citizens to hold our leaders accountable for their decisions against humanity, even those ideologies with which we disagree.

  19. There needs to be nothing left of iran in the mid east but a blanket of radiatioin fallout and the sand in the former iran becomes a glass roller skating rink. That would send a message to hezbollah and the rest of the terror sponsoring regions that we don’t play or make shady deals like obozo did during his 8 years of scandals and corruption.

  20. Darleen Greer: I completely agree with your post, but my advice to you is to learn about periods, commas, spelling, and sentence structure, and don’t write in anger. Calm down and think about what you have to say so that it will be better understood by your readers.

    • Shelly…..
      Don’t worry your little head about the way anyone else expresses themselves! We all easily read and understood her comments! She, obviously, knows how to express her outrage, and doesn’t need to meet with your approval! 🤫

    • Shelley, I agree with your kindly advice. If the goal is to communicate and be understood, it’s important to be lucid and considerate of the reader by applying basic writing skills; but if the writer’s goal is only to vent, then she shouldn’t expect everyone to suffer the avalanche of her fury. We’ll just move on without reading–no disapproval necessary. In this case, I suspect the writer just wanted to rant.

  21. The whole situation belongs to Jimmy Carter. When the Islamists overthrew the Shah of Iran in 1978 and took 52 of our embassy personnel hostage,
    for over a year, he should have said to the Islamists: Every day that you keep our people hostage, one of your cities will disappear from the face of the earth. If any of our people are harmed, Teheran will disappear. He should have followed up on that threat. Instead he cowered in the White House until Ronald Reagan was elected. By then it was too late to use any powerful threats. Jimmy Carter does not deserve to be revered he screwed up totally and we have all of this present Islamist situations as a result of his inaction. If we would have had someone like Trump in the White House at that time, there would be no problem now.

    • Shelly, you know your history very well. You write a very accurate and thoughtful narrative. I was fully aware of the hostage crisis, day by day until the inauguration day of the late President Reagan. Keep writing.
      Prima

  22. Go mr trump. kick their f—n asses off the map. Enough threats by them they can’t beat the best in the world all us Americans. Trump in 2020

    • Iran reminds me of the flea floating down the Mississippi on his back with a hard on screaming ” open the bridge”, Iran has a similar misconception of its size.

  23. RICH YOU ARE 100% RIGHT SLEEPER CELLS ALL OVER AND YOU CAN THANK OBAMA FOR THAT THIS MAN WAS A FRIEND OF HIS OBAMA GAVE THEM MONEY AND WEAPONS WE NEEDS TO BE ARRESTED FOR TREASON ALSO HE KNOW WHERE THE SLEEPER CELLS ARE HIDING NOT ALL OF THEM BUT HE KNOWS SOME OF THEM ALSO THE CORRPUT DEEP STATE YEA THEY KNOW TO NONE OF THERE WORTHLESS LYING PIECES OF SHIT CARE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY THEY ALREADY SOLD THEY SOULS FOR MONEY AND POWER TO SATAN BUT TRUMP BARR WHO ARE GOOD WANT TO TAKE THEM DOWN WHY DO YOU THINK THE FACIST LEFT IS PISSED OFF BECAUSE THEY SOLD THERE SOULS THEY WANT TO DESTORY ISRAEL THOSE ARE GODS PEOPLE REVELATION 21 IT SAID MESS WITH ISRAEL MY CHOOSEN PEOPLE AND YOU WILL FEEL THE WRATH OF ME MUSLIM ARE VERY VOILANT PEOPLE AND THEY ALL NEED TO BE REMOVED FROM OUR COUNTRY THERE IS A LAW WRITTEN IN THE 20S THAT MUSLIM ARE NOT TO BE ALOUD INTO THIS COUNTRY SO BUSH CLINTON OBAMA ALL BROKE THAT LAW

    • EARL GARRETT: VERY GOOD RESPONSE. IF YOU WORRY ABOUT GRAMMAR AND PUNCTUATION, YOU PROBABLY MISSED THE REASON FOR THE POST.

  24. President Truman got the land for Israel. The British were miffed that they were not consulted since they were the experts on the Middle East and that had been their sphere of influence. President Truman said he did not have Muslim voters but he did have Jewish ones. My Father’s Jewish friend was a bit overwhelmed at sleeping in a tent on the desert. He had envisioned something more exciting! Exotic! Etc. At the time it was just plain old Middle East desert.

  25. the reason why the fighting over in the middle east is because they want Israel land
    god helped Israel get that land god told Israel to wipe out all the Palestinian they
    disobeyed god and the lord left them there as a adversary and they been fighting ever since i have the constitution book and there’s the freedom of speech i made a
    comment in the last about Pete buttigeig and y’all didn’t post it but that’s ok

  26. I agree with all the comments here. Know that you have a staunch and true ally in the State of Israel, who has also suffered taunts and threats in their attempt to “negotiate” with this murderous and intractable regime for years. Their chants have been ,”Death to America…Death to Israel”. It’s time we show them who’s boss and that they can’t bully us any longer. Thank you, President Trump.

  27. H Clinton OCT 18,2016..thats 2016 “If that fu..ing bas…d wins,we all hang from nooses” see Hillorys massive meltdown many sources..

  28. God bless the American people. God bless the Iranian people. God Bless the American President..

    Mr. Soleimani was responsible for the deaths of over 500 American soldiers- men and women.
    He was also responsible for the deaths of thousands of Iraqi and Iranian people.
    OUR WORLD is a safer place without this monster.

    • agreed., They are celebrating in Iran. So sad that 1500 people were killed by the regime last week.

  29. Well the world has officially turned upside down. Thousand of Iraq citizens and Iranians are celebrating, baking cakes and tweeting their thanks. The dimwit democrats are insulting this bold move as are the liberal media morons. Thank you President Trump. You did what needed to be done to rid the world of another evil.

    • I hope the American people take notice of each individual in Congress crying their eyes out for Iran and the murderous general that got what he deserved. Come election day these SOB’s ought to be sent back home to actually work at a job.

  30. I have no doubt that there are sleeper cells here in America. Piss poor immigration laws and border security ( the lack of a functioning barrier, the restrictions placed on the brave men and women trying their best to protect our borders) have seen to that. It is time, and I believe we finally have a President with enough balls to do this, that we just obliterate these America hating bastards. No “shock and awe” bullshit. No lobbing a few bombs and then asking if they have had enough. Straight out wipe the country off the face of the map. We don’t need their oil or their bullshit. And anyone who attempts to create chaos or harm here on American soil should be terminated with extreme prejudice. Enough of this worrying about the “innocents” in those countries. They are not innocent. They have allowed terrorism and terrorists to flourish in their countries and in their homes. Theirs is an ideology that cannot be dealt with politically or with negotiation. The only thing they understand is violence and death. Either they die or everyone who does not follow their beliefs must die. That is what they believe and how they live.

  31. THANK YOU PRESIDENT FOR HAVING GOD TO LEAD YOU IN ALL OF YOUR BATTLES. GOD HAS ALL OF THE ANSWERS TO ALL QUESTIONS. HE ALREADY KNOWS THE OUTCOME.

  32. As I have said before, the Iranian regime is, EVIL, and has been for a long time ! This man was part of that evil. He SHOULD have been killed a LONG time ago, but President Obama, actually WARNED Iran, that Israel planned to kill him, and so it never happened. The President’s BEFORE Trump, never had the guts to take this murderous thug out, which allowed him to keep on murdering innocent people !

  33. Yes President Trump protects us and he will continue to do so and the American people will stand behind him. So bring it you Libtard Lefties we are prepared to go the distance for this President and we’re going to Win

  34. It’s about time to have a president who will do what he says and protect the United States of America! You cannot negotiate with terrorists and evil.they only have one agenda… Seek and destroy. We,sadly, have to play with the same playbook. They understand that only.

    • I ABSOLUTELY BELIEVE THIS DENNIS. THE DEMONRATS HATE OUR PRESIDENT SO MUCH THEY WILL GO TO ANY MEASURE TO GET RID OF HIM. GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FAMILY AS WELL AS AMERICA AND THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WITH YOUR HOLY AND PRECIOUS PROTECTION. IN JESUS NAME AMEN

  35. Teddy Roosevelt said to speak softly, but carry a big stick. A USMC officer said that we come in peace bearing small arms only, but if you f**k with us we will kill you all. It’s a matter that the US has a bigger stick & if Iran persists it’s because they want to die. Why is it Iranian leadership wants their soldiers to be martyrs? Their leaders ought to lead by example to receive the most gruesome deaths imaginable.

  36. Thank you President Trump for taking out this ego maniac who has caused so may lives lost in our military and so many innocent people in Syria, Lebanon and Iraq and more. He was a monster who hated anyone who was not believing in what he believed in, but especially Americans.. He wounded so many of our soldiers in Iraq with road bombs he designed to penetrate armor clad vehicles.To hear idiots like lying Elizabeth Pocahontas Warren and other Democrats boast that killing a man who has killed hundreds of Americans and wounded thousands is a war crime,,, I hope the American people remember how stupid she is when they vote. Imagine Pocahontas being president…. her talking to leaders of places like North Korea, Russia or China ???

    • right on. I thought the same thing last night. This USA NEEDS to have Trump win in 2020 to continue to make the changes necessary to REVERSE the horrors of the Obama administration.

  37. I love it, no more bullshit, about time we started acting like a Superpower, will the Dems and their media ever get why Trump was elected? Stop wasting our taxpayers money and get on board with your President!

  38. We have waited a long time for President that doesn’t take shit from these radical crazies. A president with common sense and has BALLS

    • Yes, Danny. We have a man of action and I don’t mean one that will draw a line in the sand with his pink crayon.

  39. Trump has proven time and time again that He is a man of truth and integrity, while the LIBERALS prove daily that Liberals are liars, thieves, and Traitors of the greatest magnitude. To save America may require total war against the traitor Liberals. I pray the Criminal Communist Liberals finally get the Civil War they have been stoking since they lost their first Civil War.

  40. Haven’t we heard this same rhetoric before? I think it was from some other loud mouth arrogant jackwad from Iran’s neighboring country. I also think he got his backside handed to him and finally ended in front of a firing squad.

  41. God Bless President Trump, he stand stands for God, the United States of America and We the People. Keep up the good fight!!!!!

  42. Quick and decisive victory. The kind of victory the criminal politicians denied us in Viet Nam. They prospered while we bled.
