    Remember those Republicans who supported Nancy Pelosi and betrayed the American voters with this vote. – I have very often been thoroughly disgusted with the behavior of spineless, disloyal Republicans in the U.S. Congress, but seldom as disgusted as I felt on Wednesday afternoon. That was when we got news that 129 Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives joined with Nancy Pelosi and the Democrat caucus in a vote to condemn President Trump’s decision to pull U.S. military personnel out of harm’s way as the Turkish military invaded Northern Syria on Sunday. That decision involved about 50 U.S....

    The U.S. President Donald Trump did not oppose a deal struck between the Syrian Kurdish-led forces, Russia and the Syrian government in Damascus to protect against a Turkish offensive in northeastern Syria, the commander of the force said as his fighters battled a new push by Ankara-backed fighters to seize a strategic border town. The commander of the Kurdish-led forces, Mazloum Abdi, said Trump essentially gave the go-ahead for the deal in a phone call Monday. The Kurds deal, announced Sunday, came after Trump ordered U.S. troops to step aside as Turkey launched its attack last week. Under the agreement,...

    Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan put US President Donald Trump's letter "in the bin", the BBC has been told. In the letter dated 9 October, and sent after US troops were pulled out of Syria, Mr Trump told Mr Erdogan: "Don't be a tough guy. Don't be a fool!" President Trump was urging Turkey not to launch a military offensive against Kurdish-led forces in northern Syria, but Mr Erdogan ignored this request. US Vice President Mike Pence is now in Ankara to push for a ceasefire. The US has faced intense criticism for the withdrawal of troops, which critics say...

    Gabbard who has come under criticism during the campaign for her controversial meeting with Syrian dictator Bashar Al-Assad, particularly by Kamala Harris said that the slaughter of the Kurds being done by Turkey is yet another negative consequence of the regime change war weve been waging in Syria. She continued that its not just Trump who has the blood of the Kurds on his hand, but also many other politicians and figures in the mainstream media who have been championing and cheerleading this regime change war. Gabbard then blasted both news organizations sponsoring the debate: The New York...

    A tremendous deception has been perpetrated on the American public. The fake news, Democratic Party, and neoconservatives within the GOP have gone into hysterics over President Donald Trumps recent decision to remove troops from Northern Syria, in what they are calling a betrayal of Kurdish allies. Big League Politics has reported on the Kurds setting ISIS terrorists free at several key junctures throughout 2017 when the war against the caliphate was not yet decided. We also reported that the Kurds have been releasing ISIS terrorists in recent days as a ploy to lure U.S. troops back into the region. The...

The Vatican announced Gianis replacement today, Gianluca Gauzzi Broccoletti, who has served in the Vatican police corps since 1995 and was appointed Gianis deputy last year. A former officer in both Italys finance police, the Guardia di Finanza, and Italys Secret...

But the damage is done," Biden explained to the crowd. "You...

    President Trump on Wednesday blasted Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) following a heated meeting at the White House, questioning her mental fitness and commitment to the country. "Nancy Pelosi needs help fast! There is either something wrong with her 'upstairs,' or she just plain doesnt like our great Country," Trump tweeted. "She had a total meltdown in the White House today," he continued. "It was very sad to watch. Pray for her, she is a very sick person!" Pelosi's office did not immediately respond to a request for comment. SNIP

    The Gatestone Institute ^ | October 16, 2019 | Malcolm Lowe
    As the Voice of America itself reported on January 23, Erdogan's plan was to resettle three million or more refugees from other parts of Syria in this "security zone" extending twenty miles deep into Syria. Twenty miles may not sound much, but the VOA omitted to mention almost all the Kurdish towns of northeastern Syria lie within that area. So Erdogan's intention to annihilate the Kurdish presence in that area and replace it with others has been manifest ever since the beginning of 2019. A whole series of Trump's Republican supporters in the Senate expressed outrage over his...

    Minutes before a small group of key lawmakers were scheduled to discuss the sudden withdrawal of all U.S. troops from northern Syria with President Donald Trump, 129 House Republicans broke ranks and voted Wednesday to rebuke decision. The move to cross party lines and vote with Democrats to condemn the overseas directive showed the overwhelming bipartisan opposition and frustration with Trump for wanting to remove personnel from the Middle Eastern region as Turkey takes military action against Syrian Kurdish forces. The Kurds are American allies who the U.S. has fought alongside for years in an effort to eradicate ISIS from...

    In a bipartisan rebuke to President Donald Trump, the US House of Representatives has overwhelmingly passed a resolution condemning his decision to pull United States troops out of Syria, abandoning US allies in the region as Turkish troops have moved in. The 354-60 vote on the resolution Wednesday was largely symbolic, but it signaled the widespread disapproval among lawmakers for Trumps latest controversial foreign policy move. It came as fighting continued in northeastern Syria between Turkey and Kurdish fighters, who have been a key US ally in fighting the terror group ISIS.
