Mark Steyn Has Excellent Analysis on Trump’s Syria Action…

Political commentator and extraordinarily brilliant satirist Mark Steyn was on Fox and Friends this morning to provide his perspective on President Trump’s decision to take action in Syria.

Steyn brilliantly frames the issues. [Hat Tip Stella]

.

Additionally, a point that apparently needs to be made. Idiot MSM pundits like Jake Tapper, though it’s not exclusive to Tapper, keep pointing out the 2013 tweet by President Trump warning Obama about action in Syria and framing their narrative about “what changed?” etc.

Just for clarity. Between the 2013 tweet by non candidate Trump and the 2017 action by President Trump, there was a 2014 Authorization for Use of Military Force (AUMF) voted and approved by Senate committee  permitting military action in Syria against the backdrop of chemical weapon use and terrorism.

I swear sometimes the MSM are flippin’ idiots, then I remind myself of the David Mamet principle: “In order for left-wing ideologues to keep espousing their cognitively disconnected talking points they need to pretend they don’t know things.

Yes, indeed.  Pretending not to know things is a useful pretense.

    In the spirit of seeking understanding, will someone PLEASE help those of us that have a problem with the fact that there was no investigation, the fact that the photos of the gas attacks look very sketchy (and God knows they have lied to us before), why we are all of the sudden expect to just accept the fact the we are now team NEOCON? What happened to “No longer will America be a part of Nation Building”? I get that there are strategic reasons (seen and unseen). I also get the possibility that Trump is a 3D chess player, and he has this under control. I am comfortable with these things. I am not comfortable with accepting the moral justifications being given. There has to be a better way.

    Yes, and how abFlashback: Susan Rice Urged McMaster to Get Rid of Trump Loyalists, National Security Group Led By Bannon

    From Gateway Pundit:

    Attention is turning to National Security Advisor, H.R. McMaster as the situation with Syria heats up. McMaster replaced General Flynn as National Security Advisor after he was forced to resign in February.

    President Trump ordered a missile strike on an airbase in Syria reportedly holding chemical weapons and said he is prepared to take further action if necessary in a letter released by the White House yesterday.

    TGP also reported yesterday that McMaster is said to be working behind the scenes with Petraeus to put troops on the ground in Syria, a foreign policy decision many are saying is an about face from President Trump’s previous claims of how he would handle the Syrian conflict.

    This news is on the heels of former National Security Advisor, Susan Rice being the person who unmasked General Flynn which ultimately led to his resignation, ushering in McMaster. Susan Rice wanted General Flynn out.

    After McMaster was brought in to replace Flynn, she took to her Twitter account to congratulate him and said,

    SUSAN RICE’S TWEET OF 2-20-17:
    “Hope you will be able to choose your team, have direct reporting and daily access to POTUS, and can eliminate Strategic Initiatives Group.” ”

    Strategic Initiatives Group was reportedly an internal White House think tank led by Steve Bannon set up to influence President Trump.

    Steve Bannon was removed from the National Security Council on April 5th.

    Many eyebrows are being raised now as Nationalist advisors are being pushed out or put on the back burner while globalists trickle in.

    Was the ousting of General Flynn planned all along in order to stop Trumps’ ‘America first’ agenda? Seems likely.

    Is the Treehouse covering this?out this: Susan Rice congratulating McMasters two months ago!
