On the Syrian Bombing…

The motivation for Great Britain, France and the United States to use their air power to downgrade Assad’s capability to use chemical weapons is to send a message to the other rogue states that in this, on this earth we cannot permit, the Western powers, cannot permit chemical weapons or nuclear weapons and we just can’t permit them to be used.

Now, there are a number of people who doubt that Assad the dictator of Syria, is using chlorine and the other chemical weapons. There is no one else on the planet that has the delivery system to place chlorine gas in a suburb of Damascus, no one, it’s either Assad or nobody. Now, he’s got a history all the intelligence agencies agree that he’s doing it. Macon of France and Theresa May of Great Britain never in a million years would have signed on with Donald Trump to bomb Syria had their intelligence services, not said it’s Assad. So, the bombing to downgrade the chemical situation was lawful and legitimate.

Now, whether we should do it or participate you can debate that all day long. But if we’re not going to send messages throughout the world that chemical weapons are unacceptable if we the United States are not going to do that. Who’s going to do it? So, then you’re going to have every tinhorn Decatur having chemical weapons because they’re not hard to develop. That’s what led to the Iraq war that everybody thought Saddam Hussein had this big cache of chemical and biological weapons, it’s turned out to be false by the way. And the intelligence agencies turned out to be wrong, I’ll see that. But now we have a number of attacks in Syria. A number of attacks on the ground the medical people say this baby died from chlorine ingestion. All right, the doctors aren’t lying, so it’s who’s putting the chlorine in? Who’s putting the chemical weapons in as nobody else has a delivery system to do it. It’s not like Syria is a place where you can just drive around with big trucks full of chemical weapons and dump them. You know the military controls Syria. So, if you know anything about this there isn’t any doubt that Assad is the villain and he’s protected by Putin in Russia and Iran.

So, he feels he can get away with it, see he would love, Assad would love to have America and Russia slug it out. Assad would love that so that’s one of the reasons that he continues to do this to try to get a bigger conflict going. Assad is a real evil guy. Now, you turn on the television and you hear the dishonest charlatans say oh this is “wag the dog”. That means the movie, Wag the Dog, where Dustin Hoffman was in. And it’s about a president who gets in trouble and then creates falsifies a military conflict, to get people’s minds off the trouble that he has.

So, immediately these charlatans go out on cable television, network television, “oh it’s Wag the Dog”. So, I’m saying to myself to believe that you would have to believe that Macron of France and May of Great Britain are colluding with Trump to save him from the Mueller investigation, they’re all in it together. The big, big drive to save Donald Trump’s butt. Who on earth would believe that? Who? It’s so moronic, so stupid, so insulting to anyone’s intelligence, yet there they are being paid millions of dollars sitting there by major corporations spouting this gibberish and I’m just sitting there going how much are people going to take? And you know what, there’s an audience for it, there’s an audience for, you would think that these people who are bereft of honesty who all day long, their agenda is to destroy people with whom they disagree including Donald Trump. You would think that people, everybody would say you know what enough I’m going to waste my time watching that. I’m not going to waste my time reading that newspaper. I know everything in that newspaper is already a foregone conclusion. The journalistic industry no longer is searching for the truth, they don’t care from the top down. A narrative is put forth to all the journalists who work in the company, and they know that their editors, producers whatever it may be, want to get Trump (awfulness from MSNBC, CNN, NYT, Stephanopoulos, and other countless outlets) or in some cases want to protect (awfulness from Sean Hannity, Laura Ingraham, and Fox & Friends, just to name a few) Trump, then rank and file know that. So, when they’re given an assignment, it’s implied, this is what we’re looking for.

So, the people reporting know what is expected of them if they want to keep their job and get good assignments. Same thing on cable TV, the pundits know what their role is, what they’re expected to say, if they don’t say it, they’re not going to be on. So, these people they go on television oh it’s Wag the Dog, So, there wasn’t anything necessary to do in Syria, it is just Trump wanted to do it to get away from the Mueller investigation and, and Macron and Theresa May, they’re helping the what kind of a moron. I mean really a 6-year-old wouldn’t say that, if they if you gave them the facts they would go, no that doesn’t really sound right, but these people are paid millions of dollars to spit this stuff out every night. It’s unbelievable, and they and people watch all right.

So, summing up the message was to the world you can’t use chemical weapons to kill anybody, much less women and children and if you do the major Western powers are going to hurt you. I don’t object to that message, I do not, even though I know the history of Iraq and how we got involved in something that we should not have gotten involved with based upon wrong information and whatever, I will see that but each situation has to be taken on its own merits.

Speculation News Gets Trumped 

From now on, I will only refer to “fake news” as speculation news because that’s what they only embrace: speculation, not the facts. Now these speculations could be eventually proven somewhat true, however I believe that this new term effectively describes how they mislead the American people. Anyhow, here’s my commentary for today… 

You hear that? It’s absolutely nothing. Complete silence. That silence is the Trump-Russia collusion “scandal” dying. A few weeks ago, all you heard was that Trump campaign officials had contacted Russians before and after November. But this was all a diversion. 

After Hillary’s humiliating loss in November, the left began smearing Trump as a Putin puppet because they couldn’t accept defeat. We heard the words “special prosecutor”, “treason”, and even “impeachment”. Now notice that the narrative is dead. Why? Because President Trump launched missiles at Syria, right on Russia’s doorstep. You don’t do that if you’re in cahoots with the Kremlin. 

So with the collusion theory up in smoke, guess what the Democrats have been reduced to. Here’s what Congressman Swalwell tweeted out to all of his random followers:

“Help me connect the #TrumpRussia dots. Submit your tips & we’ll follow the evidence & and post online”- CONGRESSMAN ERIC SWALWELL VIA HIS TWITTER ACCOUNT 

So Democrats are setting up an internet tip hotline? Congress has investigative powers and they’re asking Joe Smith from Arkansas to see if he has any tips. Obviously they have nothing. As if they wouldn’t think that anyone wouldn’t notice that they completely dropped the Trump-Russia thing, the left has now started a new anti-Trump narrative, that President Trump completely flipped his opinions on NATO and China from the campaign trail to now. 

Donald Trump campaigned on, and stills believes, that NATO members are not equally paying their contribution costs. Now, NATO member countries have begun ponying up more money. Also, with the Russian and Syrian conflicts going on, NATO needs to be as strong and as united as possible to be an absolute pain to Putin. With China, President Trump understands that a warmer relationship with China ices out Russia and to help control the North Korean conflict. 

In conclusion, pay close attention to the ever changing anti-Trump narratives that the media spews out, they reveal more about the media and less about the President. And also the media will always be in attack mode, but the key is to know their playbook: faking (and speculating) scandals, smearing, and using flip-flop allegations will be employed interchangeably throughout the news cycle. But President Trump, unlike most Republicans, doesn’t cave in when he’s attacked; so the media will continue to be steamrolled over and is left barely and desperately grasping for straws.

The US Attacks Syria 

Two nights ago, around eight o’clock (standard central time), sixty missiles were launched from American war ships in the eastern Mediterranean. Fifty-nine missiles hit their targets. The goal was to destroy an air base from which Syrian planes recently dropped sarin gas on civilians, killing thirty children and twenty women according to the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights. According to reporting based on a variety of agencies, this is the fifth time, at least, the Syrian dictator Assad has violated the Geneva Conventions and used poison gas to kill civilian.

Back in 2012 President Barack Obama threatened Assad.

“The use of chemical weapons is and would be totally unacceptable. And if you make the tragic mistake of using these weapons, there will be consequences, and you will be held accountable.”- PRESIDENT OBAMA

But Assad was not held accountable. Instead the Obama administration did what it always did, talked. And announced a deal with the dictator. A fascinating footnote is that Susan Rice was on point alongside John Kerry:

“We were able to find a solution that actually removed the chemical weapons that were known from Syria in a way that the use of force would never have accomplished.”- SUSAN RICE

“With respect to Syria, we struck a deal where we got 100% of the chemical weapons out.”- JOHN KERRY 

Obviously, a false belief. For years Assad has been protected by the Russians, who were warned the attack was coming last night so they could move their personnel out of the air field.

“Russia should be embarrassed and ashamed. They are saying there were no nerve agents or chemical weapons left. We know that for the better part of this year, Assad has been using chlorine bombs against innocent civilians and population centers, and now yesterday, a couple days ago a nerve agent, sarin. So the Russians have been covering for Assad and if it were not for the Russians, Assad would not still be in power.”- SEN. MARCO RUBIO (R-FL)

That’s true. Putin continues to prop up Assad while thousands of people die and at least five million Syrians are refugees. Most sane people support the missile attack last night. Sane is the key word here.

“It doesn’t make any sense for Assad under these conditions to all of a sudden use poison gasses. I think there is a zero chance he would have done this deliberately.”- FMR. REP. RON PAUL (R-TX)

The former congressman apparently believing Assad was set up by somebody. Now the morality of the attack is certainly acceptable. When you have war crimes being openly committed, a noble nation will confront that. Unfortunately, noble nations are in short supply these days, the USA being an exception.

Also America’s national security is in play because poison gas can be used by terrorists. Assad has a close relationship with Iran and Hezbollah. Once chemical weapons become acceptable, the world becomes an unstable place. Assad’s air force should have been destroyed a long time ago and NATO should have established safe zones inside Syria to protect the innocent. Under President Obama none of that was remotely possible because of his strategy of retreat. But now the new President Donald Trump is sending a message to the world: The US will not tolerate war crimes from nations like Syria.

The downside is for every action, there is a reaction. So security is heightened here in the USA, as we become an even bigger target for evil-doers.

Summing up, America was justified in destroying the Syrian airport, rogue nations should be dealt with by the world but if they are not, the lone superpower has a responsibility. Even most of the Trump-haters in Congress agree that if we can stop children from being gassed to death, we should do so.

On Trump and Obama Policies and Our Siberian “Friends”…

Here are some of my thoughts on the Trump and Obama agenda and Russia:

Again, we don’t know if the Trump campaign colluded with the Russians to change the outcome of the election, but what I do know that America and Russia are not buddy-buddy with each other. 

If you want to know what a pro-Russia agenda would look like, here are some elements: slash defense spending, slow down our nuclear modernization, roll back nuclear defense missiles, enter one-sided nuclear arm control agreements, and do everything that you can to stop American oil and gas production. Those were Obama’s policies for eight years, not Trump’s. Trump has proposed the exact opposite of those listed items, which would not be good for Russia.

I am not saying that Obama was colluding with the Russians or was actively trying to help out the Russians, but Trump’s policies are polar opposites of helping out Russia. Until all of these investigations are carried out and completed, you can believe whatever you want to believe in how involved the Russians were actually involved with the election; but stop spewing out the narrative that Trump and Putin are practically best friends.
