        This is a huge oversimplification. Not all Kurds are the same. We have nothing in common with the communist ok, for example. There are Kurds who are our allies, and I feel for them, but that’s where they live. Like it or not Turkey is a nato ally. We have a treaty, voted on by congress, and signed by the president, all as per The Constitution. We also have Iranians, Russians, and Syrians, and it’s about to get hot. There’s rumors that the Chinese have soldiers in Syria. Assad’s regime is in control now of most of Syria. So what are we talking about here, Kurdistan? We going to create Kurdistan? And defend it? I don’t think so. So what then? What’s our goal? Put aside feelings for the kurds. What’s the logic? Russians Syrians and Kurds all hate isis. Turkey? Not so much really. And if Russia hits our nato ally Turkey? What then? And people say that President Trump is crazy for wanting to pull out of nato. Hah!

          Those so-called “nation builders” were on a demo mission. They left the middle east in tatters so they could get the spoils. Now they hope to do the same to us. Good luck with that.

          It is laughable that Deep State even pretends to be opposed to ISIS. We created these terrorists. We armed them, funded and trained them. There are camps right here in the USA.

          ISIS is to our *shadow* government what NoKo is to China. They are attack dogs on a leash.

          Hell.. we likely turned terrorists loose on 9/11 so we could push through the unconstitutional Patriot Act. That was the whole point, wasn’t it? I wonder what calamity our *shadow* government has planned to take away 2a?

    I’ll say this about Rooster Head:
    He has consistently pushed the envelope of actually DOING something about corruption/deep state, with hardly any resulting action. Glass half full. He never actually WENT THERE, but At least he brought things to attention.

    However, with the demise of McCain (arm twisting) and Gowdys retirement from govt and joining Team Trump, I am optimistic about Rooster Heads stepping aboard the Train.

    We shall see, of course. But I am looking forward to Rooster Heads work being applied towards our cause with a lot less other considerations abating his actions.

    He could be a great addition.

      VSGPDJT chooses players for very specific optics. Trey Gowdy
      is unmatched when he does what he does best. He is mentally pretty much the most nimble attorney I have ever seen in questioning a witness. It’s must see rapid-fire, hi-energy, pithy, no rhetoric, precise, and blunt. He reads his witness without looking at them, his gaze goes up, to the side, his expression of knowing everything they are going to say, a look that must be unnerving for the witness. It’s exhilarating and terrifying at the same time. Hard to explain but stunning.

      Good Times.

    https://vdare.com/articles/ann-coulter-on-impeachment-luckily-dems-never-have-personal-political-motives How about the Obama administration’s endless investigations of Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson? As was obvious from the outset, Officer Wilson had done absolutely nothing wrong when he fatally shot Mike Brown—something even Obama’s corrupt, subpoena-defying attorney general, Eric Holder, had to concede after reviewing all the evidence.

    Those massive Department of Justice investigations were undertaken to gin up the Democratic base in order to help Hillary, who proceeded to honor Mike Brown’s mother on stage at the Democratic National Convention.

    “This is the third film from the legendary filmmaker to debut at AFI after 2011’s “J. Edgar” and 2014’s “American Sniper.” A west-coast source, who’s seen the film, tells me it is Eastwood’s “unrelenting condemnation of a corrupt FBI and a news media willing to go along with any narrative they deem click-worthy.” This same source tells me that for that very reason the film will no doubt “irk more than a few” people whom, as they watch the film, will realize Eastwood is drawing parallels to FBI corruption and “fake news” in the Trump-era.”

    Treepers,

    IMHO, the Horowitz report will be a dud and not indicative of much of anything. This is consistent with the partisan “watchdogs” called Inspector Generals within the employ of the government. In a nutshell, they are to deeply entrenched in the system to hold it accountable. They may be, in fact, the deepest of the “Deep State.” Like SD indicated, a Friday dump is not a favorable sign toward justice.

    Early on, Joe DiGenova also indicated to forget Horowitz. Horowitz is not only an IG – which we see can be the most corrupt of all Deep State players like Atkinson – but he was appointed by Obama. In addition, Horowitz has no power to prosecute. Horowitz is chummy with all the perps. Also not good.

    Barr and Durham are doing the investigation. We’ll see whether we 1) have equality under the law and justice; and 2) our Republic is preserved. Barr knows the stakes. The question is will he rise to the occasion. I sure wouldn’t want the destruction of the Republic on our hands. Surely he understands reformation is impossible and simple terminations and summary reports ain’t gonna get it.

    https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/corinne-weaver/2019/10/09/facebook-refuses-bidens-request-take-down-trump-ad Facebook is standing by its new approach to political advertising, despite sharp criticism from the left.

    Former Vice President Joe Biden’s presidential campaign asked Facebook to remove President Trump’s ad on October 8, according to The New York Times. The ad claimed that Biden, “offered Ukraine $1 billion in aid if the country pushed out the man investigating a company tied to Mr. Biden’s son.” Biden’s campaign wanted Facebook to take down the video and reject all of Trump’s future campaign material.

    The Biden campaign penned a missive to Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and COO Sheryl Sandberg from the Biden campaign. That letter put Facebook “on notice” and requested that if Trump, the RNC, “or other third party advertisers allied with the Trump campaign attempt to buy advertising or otherwise spread these lies,” Facebook remove them.

    While CNN wouldn’t run the ad, Facebook took the free-speech stance.
