Conspicuous Timing – President Trump Punches Back at Senate Decepticons, Announces Withdrawal From Syria…

The White House says U.S. has started returning troops home from Syria as it transitions to next phase of campaign.  Additionally, all U.S. State Department personnel are being evacuated from Syria within 24 hours (link).

White House – “Five years ago, ISIS was a very powerful and dangerous force in the Middle East, and now the United States has defeated the territorial caliphate. These victories over ISIS in Syria do not signal the end of the Global Coalition or its campaign. We have started returning United States troops home as we transition to the next phase of this campaign. The United States and our allies stand ready to re-engage at all levels to defend American interests whenever necessary, and we will continue to work together to deny radical Islamist terrorists territory, funding, support, and any means of infiltrating our borders.”  (Link)

The UniParty Decepticons will not be pleased…

        Hopefully the gains made in that regard, at home, will take away the purchased purpose of the need for security.

          As usual, it’s politics. If you destroy the fields, you lose support of the locals who hate the taliban. The answer being employed (agree with it or not) is to intercept the smugglers and traffickers so as not to hurt the locals.
          Now whether the smuggled products are being intercepted….. Well, we can only hope so.

        It’s not that simple. When we destroyed poppy fields in the South/West – they’d proliferate in the East. And vice versa. Then there was the problem of replacing that income with another equal — if not more — income for those growing poppy. As Obama withdrew troops, so did our ability to “police” everything. And anyway, Afghan farmers of poppy are in most cases victims too; victims of international drug syndicates that enforce a brutality almost as bad as IS. Not in all cases, though.

        I never agreed with it, but it was sometimes easier to maintain the status quo so that we could at least maintain obs, instead of playing eternal whack-a-mole.

        Much more involved, but I hope I’ve provided some clarity.

        • Then let the rest of the world protect the poppy fields. Those who profit from heroin should PAY people to protect their fields instead of relying on the American taxpayer to pay for American soldiers to do it. They should absorb the REAL cost of their heroin business rather than American taxpayers and their sons and daughters.

        The orders most likely were given by their globalists’ overlords to the leaders of countries who have taken money from them to do their bidding. Those leaders delegate it to others who protect the opium fields, harvest and process it and ship it back to our country and others.

      Better to raise people who do not need to take the drugs as a crutch because they are screwed up mentally and weaklings. Then the problem is actually solved !

      Today Fentanyl is far worse and that comes from our friend China, you know the people Apple are in bed with !

      As long as we we allow young people to be mind effed in the schools and by PRAVDA.MSM we will never solve what we call the drug problem. Now those young people have grown up and 50 years old or more. And the new crop is even worse than the old crop[ The truth is simple, it is NOT a drug problem it is a people problem ! Realize nobody forces these weak minded fools to take drugs, they do it willingly and by their own stupidity. We enable it so of course it never gets solved and only gets worse. All of the rehabs tell them it is NOT their fault and it is a disease. I Know first hand because I sponsored a young woman in one of these insane programs. It is criminal how they have turned it all into a massive business enterprise using your tax dollars ! And many receive SSI for their disease ? So you got screwed twice and now ongoing !

      The wars are also a horrid sham on the people and I know that one first hand as well.

        Despite the best efforts of their parents, these poor kids are indoctrinated in our taxpayer-funded schools to have no hope for their futures. Climate change is going to kill us, capitalism is the cause, and Republicans are the facilitators. We strip them of optimism, make them fearful about the future, destroy traditional religious and family values, and then wonder why, in their despair, they turn to drugs to medicate against their pain.

          I would say drug abuse has to do with spiritual decline and nihilism.

          They believe in nothing. No hope. No confidence. Debase themselves. Use addiction to fill voids. Unable to confront life. Fear.

          They don’t need more government. More government is part of the reason they get to abuse. They need people who won’t enable them but actual care and toughen them up.

        It starts with the perceived need to “feel good” at all times. Young people —even as far back as my parents’ baby boomer generation have had the expectation of feeling emotionally comfortable and/or euphoric (good) 24/7. Life doesn’t feel good 24/7 but try tellng that to young adults who have large boxes full of participation trophies in their mothers’ attics. Today we condition kids (especially little boys) to think that something is “wrong” with them if they can’t sit still in a classroom all day after depriving them of necessary recess time only to have a “professional” diagnose them with a disorder and prescribe them pills. More than half of these kids live in broken homes without dads. So yeah— we have a people problem. None of this will change until we get tough, stay married, and seek God.

          Yep that is the new game. Several years back I mentioned what I called false patriotism based on these phony wars. That was about 2012-13 when Obama was ramping up ISIS/ISIL and just about to make sure they got all of our weapons, gear and ammo in Iraq. Many so-called conservatives called me an America hater because i simply pointed out the simple truth of the matter. The false patriotism was tool used to keep it all going as long as possible. Then returning vets started realizing how badly they had been lied to and deceived and many started committing suicide and still do because they could not handle these realities. Of course our gov simply gave them more psychotropic drugs to help solve the problem and exacerbated the problem bigly.

          In an obtuse twist of fate we RVN vets were treated like garbage but were not subjected to the supposed “help” from our gov ? So in a way we were spared their help and had a chance to actually recover from all of it. But as in all things, some people recover and others as do not. So in this sense we were the lucky ones being spared their help !

          In 1970 I got a phone call from a friend who asked me to come and pick him up at LAX. I was stunned because he was supposed to be in RVN. Being their in 68-69 I knew something was very wrong and he said, I really need your help. So I went and fetched him. He had gotten busted by CID in country for being strung out on heroin and was tossed out on the street within 4 days from RVN. I helped him get back on his feet , he got a job and got off the drugs and went on to become a machinist. He died last year of alcohol and cigarettes. My how things have changed yet only gotten worse when all is said and done. Heroin was not yet a problem when I was there or where I was at. Shortly after it was a serious problem. The larger more secure bases were hit the hardest with drugs supplied by Gen Pao and our own CIA out of Laos via Air America !

          All of it is a massive sham on the people. Same as the Mueller sham today. Nobody is ever held accountable for their crimes and lots of people die and are seriously harmed forever for junk thinking.

        I see it more like this, though may not be explained perfectly as I am just a simple heathen.

        Much of War monies are ear-marked for certain aspects of War. Like X amount for planes, X for ships, etc. But there is War money that is not specifically assigned, and kept in kind of a reserve for whatever comes up. What PDJT can do now is say, “look how much we have SAVED from Winning and pulling out of Syria.”


        Now we can feel free to concentrate non-ear-marked X war money to build the Wall for the gravely needed National Defense of our Border….

      I think the wall and illegal immigration is foremost in Trump’s list of priorities. Being that nobody in DC wants that to happen, he has to be creative. Trump does know that the public is against illegal immigration, the flouting of our laws, and the huge drain on our financial resources to the detriment of CITIZENS. He will keep raising the issue publicaly, while he works to build the wall “without funding”. 😉

      ” looking in the garage for some rope to hang myself ” Depression is multi-factored, but convinces sufferers that life is hopeless / futile.

      However, some depressions are caused by an inability to metabolize Tyrosine and Methionine from food (caused by digestive and metabolism issues) and a lack of Magnesium, Zinc, Vitamin B1 / B3 / B6 / C co-factors. Other depressions are caused by sleep deprivation and a lack of Tryptophan with the same vitamins as above and yet others a lack of Glutamine + Vitamin C. I could go on with other variants. None of these remedies are expensive.

      Mark: You might check a book, The Amino Revolution, by Dr Robert Erdmann, PhD — published by Simon & Schuster. ( Sadly, I have no financial interest in your buying the book ! )

    Ann Coulter has turned into a hateful person Guess she does not understand why the President does not listen to her about the border wall maybe he should he might learn something that she thinks he does not know.

    Just so you guys know, there is a massive wave of troll activity going on at practically every major pro-Trump hangout on the internet today. It is very much astroturfed, likely the usual suspects such as ShareBlue (formerly Correct the Record) and the like.

    This happens off and on, and has since 2016 during the election. You can usually tell it is trolling instead of natural response to some news when there is a buildup before the news, as it has been this time.

    The way it works is, using both paid humans and scripted “bots”, comments, replies, tweets, posts, etc are targeted to give the impression that Trump supporters are upset about this or that thing concerning the President, or one of his policies, or whatever. The point is simply to give the impression of a fracturing of his base, or to setup a “line in the sand” and give the impression that his base should believe that line in the sand exists.

    The hope is that actual Trump supporters read this sort of stuff and are either dejected by it and lose faith in the President, or copy it and go along with it, greatly magnifying the effect.

    The ultimate goal of course is to actually fracture the President’s base. It has never worked, but they continue to try, hoping to find one thing that creates a crack, and then focus on that going forward.

    So, this current “crises” over the Wall funding is no different. ShareBlue and the like got the heads up that this would be another opportunity to crack Trump’s base back before the Midterms with the Omnibus thing.

    I don’t know what will happen. I think the President is quite serious about not signing the CR. And very willing to shutdown the government (he knows that it isn’t big deal anyways except to the political types). I think he is using this withdrawal of troops from Syria as a way of telling Congress that, they can appropriate funds for their lobbyists, but he can find ways to not spend that money.

    In other words, he’s talking to the lobbyists.

    Will it work? Maybe not. Probably not. Will he sign the CR? I’m leaning no, but he might, especially if a veto is likely to be overturned. But if he does sign it, things are going to get interesting. Not because I think he “caved”.

    Interesting because I think it is “on” at that point. Don’t forget how much leverage he has on pretty much everyone in Washington. He’s not used much of it, and has just been accumulating it…

      F that. Let the people of Venezuela do the disposing and deposing. They’re the ones who voted in Chavez and brought about the mess they’re in. They can storm the palace with clubs once they get tired of eating zoo animals.

    This is not a surprise, this was expected.

    Had anyone listened to Ambassador James Jeffrey, Special Representative for Syria Engagement,at the Atlantic Council on 17 Dec 2018, it would have been obvious this was in the works, and sooner rather than later (told y’all ’bout this yesterday…).

    This was NOT a fly-by-the-seat-of-yer-pants decision, so the Decepticon can ShutUp. This was a well-thought out and well-executed decision. Today was just the best day and time to announce it.

    We’ve two more years to finish the durn wall.
    Please put this in the Another Promise Kept category.
    And chalk up a win for Pres Trump – Amb Jeffrey managed to give the Atlantic Council a good rebuke for their myopic vision.

      One never hears or reads in the eneMedia this kind of explanation as to the direction, goals, and current status of the Administration’s diplomatic aproach to resolving the Syrian problem. It is good to hear this directly from Ambassador Jeffrey without having it “translated” through some NeoCon Globalist.

      Not sure thats what he’s telling Congress, but then my language leans to the coarse.
      “Read between the lines”?
      “I’m President, and YOUR not!”
      “I got yer international entanglements right HERE!”

      Thats the best I can do, at cleaning up what I’m thinking ,…

  35. One of the main reasons I voted for Trump was that, second only to Rand Paul (whom I supported until he dropped out), he had the least interventionist foreign policy. I am so happy over this announcement! Promises kept.

      I loved that about him as well. It’s even better than non-interventionist. 1) He wants NATO countries, Japan, etc who we’re protecting to pay up 2) He wants to get the hell out of bad entanglements but 3) he want to go full force against bad actors like ISIS who really do need an a$$ whooping. It’s a combination of smart, tough, but also not into forever wars.

    Rubio is all mad and says it is a win for Russia. I pray that we can get a real conservative to run against him next time so I can vote him out. I wish I had the quote but someone on The Last Refuge twitter feed responses said Congress will spend billions to protect other countries but not the USA. That about sums it up for me. You watch, someone will sue and some 9th circuit judge will halt the soldiers from coming home. Just kidding, kinda. Okay, I am going to go watch the splodey heads n the evening news now…

      HOW do you get 10’s of millions of people to relocate?

      Start a war, and fund ISIS, to drive them to illegally migrate to westrrn europe.
      Gang violence, in latin America, to drive them North.

    Is there or are there any list or lists of those high placed powerful people that are paying the lobbyists to bend the will of our elected officials and pervert our laws? I’m not just talking the vague boogie men mentioned in conspiracy theories that attend “Secret society” meetings, nor the often cited all around scapegoat George Soros , but the actual behind the scenes monied manipulators?

    Is there a list of uber-globalist educators bent on perverting the minds of our young people?

    It seems that these behind the scenes manipulators training up or financing the provocateurs need attention drawn to them in order to be brought to account.

      I am not a Bilderburg or Illuminati follower, either. To me that seems as removed, and as relevant as the Masons of today are, compared to membership levels during our Founder’s era.

      I think the list you seek is inexplicably buried in corporations, sub corps, independent contractors, etc.

      This isn’t about Rothschild or any other family anymore. There are thousands that are major shareholders in all of the international banks. It is a system now.

      Not many other than Soros can claim any level of relevance.

    Any member of Congress who would like to continue a presence in Syria, should feel free to go over there on their own and do just that. I’ll even contribute to the cost of sending them providing it’s a one way trip.

      It’s not like we don’t have standoff capability and over-the-horizon capability.

      If ISIS or Al Qaeda form any dense clusters or training / operations headquarters, PresTrump can always lob a couple cruise missiles on them from our missile frigates offshore.

      I think our armed drones also can operate quite far afield with their hellfire missiles.

      And there’s always old-fashioned strafing and rocket attacks by our fighter jets.

      All predicated on enough remote and on-ground surveillance and intelligence for targeting decisions.

      We got technology – let’s frikkin’ USE IT
      — instead of our boys with boots on the ground as targets to get shot at.

      You read my mind! How much money does this save? Enough for the military to build the Wall – ALL of it in “one big chunk.” “Not little chunks.” The Wall is going to get built by the U.S. Military, and it’s going to be beautiful. I think it should be dedicated to the U.S. Military. Some judge will hold up the construction in the courts, but it’s going to happen in the near future. Right before the 2020 election. Perfect timing.
