    Good to have a leader that actually cares about people, rather than constantly blowing smoke about compassion and then walking over the bodies.

      Laudable on his, their, part but I can’t help but remember the UN Blue Helmets and Rwanda.

      “which authorizes assistance to entities engaged in aiding individuals and communities in Iraq or Syria who are being, or are likely to be, targeted for genocide, crimes against humanity, or war crimes.”

      Just a guess but I would think they are one of many agencies that are supposed to be addressing this issue and apparently, haven’t.

      Hopefully, this helps because I also remember the all-out assaults on groups marked for extinction; ISIS v Yazidi, etc. We shall see.

        For those who may be interested, there is an org called Free Burma Rangers, who are currently in Syria. David Eubanks and family are missionaries, and they train indigenous people in all manner of assistance, to include Medic work.
        They have a report which just came out, a lengthy email, which is couched in terms of a recent visit to Syria by Congressman Tom Garrett.
        its really a good look at territories held by various groups (maps included), along with status of various rescue and aid actions.

        info@freeburmarangers.org/reports

        There are individua reports, and the one w/Congressman Garrett is easy to spot.

      It is moments like this that reinforces for me that our Father in Heaven bestowed this incredible man on our country. What he is doing and continues to do for people of faith is absolutely breathtaking. Christianity has been under attack for a very longtime and our President is standing up for Christians not only in our country but around the world!

        Yes Flep you are right! And I agree that it is spiritually refreshing to have a President who is not ideological, not politically correct, and does not shrink away from actively supporting Christians and the faith.

        BUT…what so many people miss is (because the eneMedia deliberatley keeps their narratives from ever including or recognizing this truth) that President Trump stands for the defense and improved welfare of ALL people of ALL religions who live in and are citizens of this great nation. He has never singled out any one religion or race as his “preferred” for any of his “growth and improvement” policies.

        AND…It’s not just what he says, but that his actions – the programs and policies that he supports and advocates as part of MAGA – all prove it beyond any reasonable doubt.

    The president is doing so many good things that never get fully reported on. If it isn’t the left lying about him, its the right covering the lefts lies and trying to pass it off as news. Its become so utterly depressing that I just can’t watch it anymore. If anyone else feels as I do, try OAN. Its quite refreshing to hear news instead of opinion dressed up as fact.

    Perhaps this could be a first step toward restoring a relationship with Bashar al-Assad, who has protected his diverse ethnic and religious populations from the onslaught of globalists, the Muslim Brotherhood, those seeking a CAliphate, and various rebel groups imported and armed by HRC, Kerry, Obama and members of the UniParty who shall remain nameless.

        Hey, I have dear friends whose families have lived there for many, many generations as Christians, and they value the Assads for attempting to run a secular government that has protected their lives, culture and businesses as well as those of other sects. They don’t appreciate the nation being used as a pawn in the battle over assets in the Middle East. As you might recall, former Secretary of State John Kerry and his wife spent time with the Assads, complimenting their attempt to develop leadership tat considers the needs of all Syrian citizens. Erdogen was Assad’s best buddy until the Turk decided to form his Caliphate. Then came The Zero’s Arab Spring!

        Greed makes for strange bedfellows, and I’m more inclined to listen to longstanding citizens of a country than the our globalist politicos and their LSM darlings, whose paychecks are signed by other globalists. The chemical attacks on fellow Syrians by the Assad government do not fit its previous profile, but certainly add to the dramatic stage play projected by those hoping to overthrow it for pipelines and other resources.

        True, Bashar’s father, Hafez, ousted the Muslim Brotherhood and deigned them terrorists unwelcome in Syria after years of horrid violence. Considering that the borders in the Middle East were drawn up by the French and British using a straight-edge ruler, more interested in their division of the resources than the ancient territories of the multiple tribes, disputes among the people should not be a surprise. The following goes into a fairly factual summary:

        https://carnegie-mec.org/diwan/48370?lang=en

        I didn’t ask that our president adopt Assad as his long lost brother, but simply restart a dialogue that, hopefully, will generate appreciation of Syria’s national identity and a peaceful future for all its citizens.

          …excellent analysis as far as it goes
          …never made Syria but worked a bit in Beirut and shared drinks with some Alawis …no question that the Assads protected the Christians and other minorities from the mainstream Sunni Muslims …but the son didn’t have the father’s political skills and the country was ripe when the arab spring came along …and his inept response made it far worse than it had to be …and then he gassed his enemies …that’s a war crime in any book …so no, we don’t deal with him

          …and yes, the French and Brits and Turks screwed the ME up 10 ways from Sunday and our own ham handedness did more harm than good there …Bush had no business in Iraq and Obama had no business in Syria …except that we did and as a result have a heavy moral burden to protect the Kurds and Israelis …by no means an easy task given the tribal nature of the entire ME

          …I still don’t understand your reference to us supporting ISIS rebels there …that’s probably a result of the ever changing alliances and me seeing it from my perspective rather than yours …but I have friends on the ground there who would spit on the idea that they are helping ISIS in any way …aside from that, imnsho Syria will be dismantled …it’s not a viable state

            John McCain, the warmonger, was directly negotiating with ISIS. Sundance has posted the photo of McCain with Al Baghdadi himself in the background on this site. So yes, we were supporting ISIS in order to attempt Assad’s overthrow. Why do you think, when ISIS was having their large military vehicle parades with some Toyotas thrown in, did we not bomb those convoys when Obama was in office?

            Israel wanted Libya and Syria wrecked as well as Egypt. So did Saudi Arabia. It is very obvious that the U.S. government does the bidding of Saudi Arabia and Israel. The disturbing thing to me is that the President is continuing Obama’s war in many respects. He seemed to understand that we should not be the world police while he was campaigning.

              …a photo of McStain with Baghdadi in the background is not evidence of Trump’s collusion with them …else Sessions was guilty of collusion because he briefly shook the hand of a Russian during a very public conference …much less is it evidence of our forces currently supporting ISiS in any way …not defending McStain, just our current, very limited troops there

              …Bush and Obama initiated those wars and committed the US to support our allies …that’s on them …Trump is not initiating those type of actions any more as pledged …he is actively supporting the elimination of Isis, including the support of our allies in that goal …he cannot simply abandon them now without throwing into question every alliance we have throughout the world …and not when such action would virtually guarantee the success of ISIS wannabes throughout the ME

              …I don’t for a moment believe Trump is “doing the bidding” of anyone …he is doing what is in our best interests as he sees it …you’re free to disagree but not to support charges that our feet on the ground there are supporting Isis in any way

                I have never said that Trump is colluding with anyone. I do think Trump is getting some very bad advice from neocons concerning the entire ME situation. During the Obama administration the CIA and other organizations were supplying ISIS with weapons and other help whether they intended to or not. I am being generous here. I am not accusing our troops who are currently in country of knowingly assisting ISIS. Trump stated recently that one primary reason we are in Syria is Israel’s security. Israel does not face much of a threat from Assad and has not for a long time.

                Also, the primary reason ISIS is now nearly defeated is the response of the Russians. Not saying the U.S. under Trump was not involved in that effort. The Syrian Army and the Russians are trying to clean up Obama’s mess. We should let them.

                Since you misinterpret my opinions, I will state that I do not believe Assad is a good guy. There are however many other dictators that are worse that we do not act on militarily. Also, I do not think Putin is a good guy. He is not, however at fault in the Syrian situation.

    I see Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) choose to wear a purple tie. Other than one person to our far right wearing a dark striped tie, everyone else chose either shades of red or blue with white shirts and dark suits. Just once I wish someone would show up wearing a white tie over a subdued red shirt and dark blue suit.

    But Obama has been funding those guilty of genocide for years. Ask Flynn. And Trump has been protecting them from the legitimate Syrian army for 2 years. Meanwhile the US and UK have been paying the White Helmet to create lies. And when US protected ISIS rebels attacked a Syrian city with Chemical weapons, in November, 4 days ago a US general claimed “Assad did it”.

    I know it is an Obama started thing, but why does Trump still go along with it?

        A lot of people have bought the intel that Bashar al-Assad (one time pal of HIllary, the guy who allowed terrorist groups who killed American troops in Iraq to harbor in his country) is a very good guy.
        Maybe they should consider who has been pushing that intel, and why they are pushing it, and that maybe that intel is bad — of course that is just my opinion…we all have to make our own way in the world after all.

          We should never have been shipping arms out of Libya through Turkey to Syria for the mercenary rebels imported from Afghanistan. Nor allowed Qaddafi to be murdered over his plan to replace the petro dollar with a gold-backed currency more favorable to Africa. And he was right; he was the last bastion against the hordes of Africans seeking refuge in Europe.

          Then don’t make it a choice between the two — is this a White Helmet Aid bill? Or is it to help give aid to people who have been genocided? Namely the Yazidis/Christians of the interior, Kurds, and other assorted Syrians who just happened to get in the way of both islamist groups (some of whom were invited in by Bashar) and Bashar’s political idiocy that wound up having Hezbollah (his pals in Iran) and Chechen mercs (his pals from Russia) playing around in his country…and none of them are so good at fighting, but hey they can kill innocent civilians just fine.
