Trump blindsided Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi into thinking we were leaving; he showed himself and that was that.

This is really comical, coming from an @sshole who I regularly refer to as Rep. Eliot Engel (D-Israel). He's been a foreign agent in Congress for years.

The video clip below might be the defining moment of his political career. It's a CNN segment from 2012 where the campaign to grant clemency for Israeli spy Jonathan Pollard was the topic of discussion.

Freepers today might be delighted to see him get his ass handed to him by former Federal prosecutor Joe DiGenova, who originally prosecuted the Pollard case back in the 1980s.

Congress has the Constitutional authority to declare war. If they want a war in Syria, they should declare one. Let’s see how that plays next November.

It is not a pro pr con position on Trump’s Syria/Kurds policy to realize/admit that his actions show there is total leadership from the WhiteHouse, not the DOD, not the State Department, not the “diplomats” and not the bureaucrats in general. The “leader” is the President, the Commander In Chief, not those who report to the President and not those who work under them.

All Engel is really doing is registering his chagrin at Trump not leaving the deep state in charge.

“Now, it’s on Congress to step in.”


I’m sorry, Rep. Engel D-NY), but it’s the executive branch that handles foreign policy, not yours or Congress’s. Perhaps you can borrow a pocket Constitution from someone and see just exactly what your job is.

What is that idiot blabbing about? The President’s Syria gambit was excellent. These people are just jealous.

So gather up your Dimwit and Neocon colleagues and have Congress declare war on Syria. Have fun explaining your rationale to the American people.

If we don’t give the Media-Academia-Industrial Complex the new Cold War against Russia that they want, they’ll keep having hearings.

Another fine example of House Democrats protecting the Constitution.

Why does anyone care about what Delusional and Corrupt Lying Leftist House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Eliot Engel (D-NY) says?

It’s politicians who’ve done any real life work up against a businessman who knows life work.

Engel is chair of one of the “peachment 45” committees so he has no bias, and apparently FACT FREE approach.

Freaking foreign affairs committee- and he has selective amnesia.

But no ambassadors have been killed yet, right?
And the Trumpster has not tried to blame some very bad video maker about any serious probles yet, right?
And we’ve not had another disastrous Arab Spring, right?

Amazing how anyone who knows even the slightest recent history can completely shut down your typical simple-minded opinion maker from the left.

House Foreign Affairs Committee Chair Eliot Engel doesn’t ‘get it’.... there IS leadership in the White House - it’s just NOT the leadership he and his deep state goons want...
