    ‘Evenin’ fellow Incorrigible Deplorables.
    Should anyone be interested, things are ramping up bigly on Syria, Russia, and Iran.

    Today H.R. McMaster spoke at the Holocaust Memorial Museum. Starting at 04:43, McMaster spoke exclusively on Syria. The White Helmets were featured.
    19:43

    Nikki Haley at the U.N. has been speaking regularly on Syria, Russia, and Iran, and yesterday at the U.N. Security Council issued a warning to the UNSC.

    State Dept spokesman Heather Nauert has been addressing Syria, Russia, and Iran, and today featured those three countries at the State Dept Press Briefing. The producers of the film “The Last Man in Aleppo,” a film about the White Helmets, were brought to the State Dept to speak on the film. The film’s producers speak remarkably good English.

    From all appearances we are beginning a maximum pressure campaign on Syria, Russia, and Iran. All vids available at State Dept youtube page https://www.youtube.com/user/statevideo/videos?disable_polymer=1

    On the btight side, Nauert nearly entered a shouting match with Andrea Mitchell. Voices were raised, bigly.
    Nauert won.

      I watched that and incidentally heard a question about Pastor Brunson who has been sentenced to life imprisonment in Turkey, whose leadership hopes to trade him for F. Gulen? Thinking of Brunson’s daughter and family:

      https://www.christianpost.com/news/turkey-seeks-life-sentence-imprisoned-american-pastor-andrew-brunson-221387/
      “Rights advocates believe that Brunson was arrested in an attempt to force the U.S. government to extradite Gulen, who resides in Pennsylvania.

      “Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called for Brunson’s release during a meeting in Ankara last month. President Donald Trump also pushed for Brunson’s release during a meeting with Erdoğan last May.

      “But last September, Erdoğan indicated that the fate of Brunson relied on U.S. government’s willingness to hand over Gulen.”

      I have confidence that President Trump will not intervene in Syria to assist the homicidal, throat cutting jihadi lunatics that are the opposition to Assad. I also have confidence that the administration can see through the “White Helmets” bs.

      With Kalifornia trying to undermine the Constitution and federal laws to thwart the voice of other states, this will go nowhere unless they want a Canada type country where people in one territory gets to dictate to people living far away from them in the same country how to live.

      To enter Connecticut into the Agreement Among the States to Elect the President by National Popular Vote, thereby committing the state’s votes in the Electoral College to the presidential candidate that wins the popular vote nationally, regardless of whether such presidential candidate wins the popular vote within the state.

      Crystal clear violation of the very Constitution that these States voluntarily ratified, found in Article I“No State shall, without the Consent of Congress, lay any Duty of Tonnage, keep Troops, or Ships of War in time of Peace, enter into any Agreement or Compact with another State, or with a foreign Power, or engage in War, unless actually invaded, or in such imminent Danger as will not admit of delay.” They ( the NPV movement ) have been dancing around this for years, daring someone to do something about it, well it looks like we may get our chance.

      The problem is, to paraphrase Algore, that there is truly no controlling legal authority. There is no provision to eject bad acting States, no way to discard their electors and neutralize cheating ( everything is left to Congress, specifically the electoral College in that case ) and this is how we wound up with DingleBarry as President. It took many extra-Constitutional actions by Lincoln and the Congress to address secession and later, reconstruction. This is a consequence of what John Adams worried about: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.” That ship sailed long ago.

      The only thing I can think of is aggressive action by dusting off the very extra-Constitutional tactics employed during the Civil War and destroying these seditious actions before the leftists succeed in overthrowing the Constitution. But that would require cooperation by the feckless Congress and the stupid party. The only reason the left is pushing like this is because they correctly perceive the weakness that these emasculated (R)epublicrats project. Between the direct attacks on the First, Second and Fourth Amendments, the unConstitutional NPV compact, conspiratorial sedition against Trump, and many more, I fear for the future.

      There is not much hope in the long run unfortunately. The left is no different than loose malignant cancer cells and will press forward until they kill the host or they are themselves killed. Perhaps allowing California to leave is the only easy answer ( because leftists in other states would flock there and this would switch a huge amount of electors at the end of the day, +100 at least, perhaps much more ). Aside from that far-fetched scenario which has no provision ( e.g., the Civil War ) I can only suggest that patriots arm up while you can, firearms and ammo, on the down-low and off the books and get ready because the enemy wants you dead.

    Tariffs on China, EU and NAFTA are moving things faster. Foreign countries and Corp America are pushing now all these RINO to bring FBI, DOJ and many folks from previous administration to justice. Mueller will go away soon and see democrats will request for that because they also drink the water from same tap means common money supply. The Middle East is also with PTrump now so that money is drying. Mid term needs lot of money.

    This guy should have never been the AG!
    For all the things he said over the years before he was appointed…he should have had to recuse himself on just about every subject.

    The GOP’s outreach to voters in the district is coming in the form of Facebook ads, detailed exclusively to The Hill, targeting 200,000 Republican voters in the district with a call to reach out to the NRCC if they faced problems while they cast ballots.

    “URGENT: Are you a Republican that tried voting in the March 13 special election but faced issues at your polling location? If so, we need to hear from you! The election depends on it,” the ad reads.

    Voters can click to send a message to the NRCC’s legal defense program about their issues and will receive a response from one of the NRCC’s lawyers.

    The NRCC says they’ve received more than 50 responses already.

    The Ides of March. So much Drama. Greek Tragedy. Guess it’s just Western Civilization. History will honor Senator Grassley and Congressman Nunes as Truth seekers. They are Modern Day Emile Zola’s who defended Dreyfus and was vindicated. They will be remembered for exonerating.our President and sending a former POTUS to GITMO so he can be with his BB”S.
