  • And just like that, Trump does more in Syria than obama ever did in eight years

    Last night Donald Trump ordered an attack on Syria. In less than 100 days, Trump has taken more action against Assad than obama did in eight years. The attack was appropriate, measured and proportional. It sent a message. To Assad and to North Korea. Trump did not have to set a red line and then walk away from it. President Obama’s decision to hold off on military action against the Assad regime after signaling that it was on the cards in response to last summer’s chemical weapons attack made the U.S. “appear weak,” former CIA Director Gen. Michael Hayden said...

    There is no question that Assad is a scoundrel. That is not in dispute. The problem with this action is the same as it was when Obama wanted to strike Assad: who benefits? The Assad regime said this strike “can only be described as short-sighted.” Right. The Islamic State (ISIS), although weakened, is still there. The jihad groups that Obama trained and armed are still there. Who benefits from a weakened Assad? ISIS, that wants to destroy the United States and is sending jihadis here to mount attacks. Trump vowed to drain the swamp, but it looks as if the...

    David Ignatius of the Washington Post praised President Donald Trump on Friday for launching a military strike against an airfield in Syria Thursday night, saying that he has restored "credibility" of America's power."Morning Joe" co-host Joe Scarborough said Trump appeared to be following in former President Barack Obama's footsteps in regards to a hands-off approach to Syria, but has reversed his policy because he recognized the death and destruction in Syria allegedly at the hands of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad."I think he found the consequences of embracing Assad which is in effect what he did, just too horrifying," Ignatius said. "I thought the president was...
  • This Isn’t the Foreign Policy Trump Campaigned On

    American Conservative ^ | April 6 2017 | Robert Merry
    It may be too early to tell for sure, but Donald Trump is looking more and more like a phony. He’s also looking like a weakling. And a political ingrate. All this is coming into stark relief with accelerating events involving Syria. The United States launched dozens of missiles against Syrian military installations to retaliate for the chemical attack on rebel-held territory. Thus did Trump demonstrate that, to the extent that his foreign policy differs from that of his predecessor, it is more aggressive and adventuresome than Obama’s. That’s the opposite of how he campaigned.

    President Barack Obama on Thursday vowed retaliatory action against Russia for its meddling in the US presidential election. "I think there is no doubt that when any foreign government tries to impact the integrity of our elections that we need to take action and we will at a time and place of our own choosing," Obama told National Public Radio. Describing potential countermeasures by the US, the President said "some of it may be explicit and publicized; some of it may not be." He said he directly confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin about a potential US response, and said his...

    IN A SHOCKING video, Vladimir Putin has warned the US to stop stoking tensions with Russia or "there will be consequences". The Russian president delivered the ominous threat as tensions between the West and Russia hit all-time highs over Russian airstrikes in Syria. In the clip, which was filmed at a Russian press conference, Mr. Putin claimed the US is focusing on Russia and Iran "to distract voters from the country's problems" by creating "an enemy and uniting the nation against them". He said: "Jeopardising Russian-American relations in order to gain brownie points internally - I consider this to be...

A cyber-war could disrupt internet communications -- time to blind Trump supporters. And it all boils down to their bribe money to take out the Syrian government.

ISIS is cool -- they enslave Christians and Jews for...

    Because the mainstream media is devoting almost all of their time and energy to covering the Trump and Clinton campaigns, most Americans don’t realize that the Obama administration is bringing us perilously close to war with Russia. On Friday, Barack Obama is going to sit down with his foreign policy team and discuss “military options” in Syria. As you will see below, the options under consideration include direct strikes “on Syrian military bases”. Russia has already pledged to respond militarily to any direct strikes on Syrian forces, and so the decisions that Barack Obama makes regarding Syria on Friday could...

    Hillary Clinton launched an astonishing public attack on Nigel Farage on Thursday - hours after he taunted her scandal-hit reputation as he campaigned beside Donald Trump. The Democratic presidential candidate used a speech attacking Trump and claiming he was linked to the KKK to launch an assault on Farage, whom she labeled as 'one of Britain's most prominent right-wing leaders' - and accused him of being inspired by Vladimir Putin. Farage had been hailed by Trump for his role in securing an anti-establishment victory in the British referendum on leaving the European Union. The former leader of the United Kingdom...

    Repeating the Democratic mantra that President George W. Bush, barely eight months into his presidency on September 11, 2001, was responsible for the terrorist attacks on the World Trade Centers, Donald Trump says his immigration stance would have prevented the atrocity. On Monday, the mouth that roars told “Fox and Friends that his policies would have made it more difficult for the 9/11 hijackers to obtain visas and challenged presidential rival Jeb. Bush’s assertion that his brother, President George W. Bush “kept us safe”:

    A burglar shot in a Franklin Commons Apartment at the 1000 block of Boblink Drive allegedly had an inconvenient urge. The unknown Pennsylvania thief was caught touching himself before a neighbor allegedly opened fire. The 21-year-old burglar was allegedly masturbating when the female second floor apartment resident spotted and confronted him around 8:30 a.m. Sunday morning. He then proceeded to enter the apartment through its balcony to reach her. It is unknown what else he may have done while he was there, but he grabbed her dog and then left the apartment. ABC News reports that the burglar may have...

    The U.S. today began bombing targets inside Syria, in concert with its lovely and inspiring group of five allied regimes: Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, United Arab Emirates, Qatar, and Jordan. That means that Syria becomes the 7th predominantly Muslim country bombed by the 2009 Nobel Peace Laureate – after Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Somalia, Libya and Iraq.

President Choom Gang has demilitarized our military. He sends the Department of Health and Human Services to the Mexican border to welcome and take care of tens of thousands of illegal children streaming across. And now he wants to deploy American troops into West Africa to combat the Ebola virus. Boy, is...

    The president is expected to issue a call to action on global warming in a commencement address Saturday at the University of California, Irvine. Earlier this month, he announced a contentious plan to cut pollution from power plants. While in Orange County, Obama also raised money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door fundraiser at the Laguna Beach home of Getty oil heiress Anne Earhart. About 25 people paid up to $32,400 to participate in a roundtable discussion with the president. He's spending the rest of the Father's Day weekend on vacation at the Rancho Mirage home of White...

    President Obama, appearing emboldened after his recent move to cut carbon emissions from coal-fired power plants, on Saturday ridiculed members of Congress who deny climate change or plead scientific ignorance as an alibi for avoiding an inconvenient truth. Speaking in gleefully sarcastic terms to a commencement ceremony at the University of California, Irvine, Mr. Obama likened those who deny climate change to people who would have told John F. Kennedy, at the dawn of the space program, that the moon “was made of cheese.” He saved his most scathing words for lawmakers who say they are not qualified to judge...

    Washington (AFP) - President Barack Obama renewed his campaign to curb carbon emissions Saturday, saying the debate over climate change is over. Obama, who made the battle against climate change a core promise of his 2008 election campaign, has been stymied at the federal level by opposition from lawmakers. Congress "is full of folks who stubbornly and automatically reject the scientific evidence," Obama told a crowd of more than 30,641 people, including thousands of graduates at the University of California, Irvine. "They'll tell you climate change is a hoax, or a fad. One says the world might actually be cooling."...
