    Trump is finished now that this newest scandal has come out. It turns out that his sons, Don Jr. and Eric, have been outed for shooting a triceratops and liberals are outraged.

            it was so heartening to see AND hear all of those wonderful people in Dallas expressing love and respect and appreciation for all he has been doing . . . God bless them all . . . and of course, God bless President Trump! What an example of steady slogging.

            There was a beautiful movie that was made in the 1950’s, I think, “All Mine To Give” . . . it was sort of a tear-jerker but a true story of this young boy who at 10 years old (I think) was the oldest child of six children – they had lost both of their parents and Robbie wanted to make sure his sibling were with people right there in their frontier settlement, with families he knew would welcome them and take good care of each of them . . . it was very touching how that boy took care of each child up to the last one that he took to a home further out, he dragged the sled with his little sister all bundled up against the freezing cold and snow and brought her to a cozy, cheerful home where he could see she would be well-cared for and then he went on his way to work up in the lumber mill, so he could make money to send back to help the families with the care of his siblings. It is a sweet story and it really got me the first time I saw it, thinking of what a rugged individual that 10-year old boy already was. I just thought I would recommend it as an alternative to watching the scathing, wretched “news”. Children like “Robbie” in “All Mine To GIve” are the people that grew up to make America great – that character and determination to do the right thing.

        Marine One came into view at 1:25 a.m. on a cool autumn morning. The executive helicopter touched down on the South Lawn four minutes later. POTUS exited the bird at 1:31 a.m. and walked into the Residence. He did not stop to answer shouted questions about the Dallas rally and Ambassador Gordon Sondland, but gave us a few waves. Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner followed POTUS off the helicopter and walked into the Residence.
        A travel/photo lid was called at 1:36 a.m.

      Here’s the full text of the joint US-Turkey statement:

      1.The US and Turkey reaffirm their relationship as fellow members of NATO. The US understands Turkey’s legitimate security concerns on Turkey’s southern border.

      2.Turkey and the US agree that the conditions on the ground, northeast Syria in particular, necessitate closer coordination on the basis of common interests.

      3.Turkey and the US remain committed to protecting NATO territories and NATO populations against all threats with the solid understanding of “one for all and all for one”.

      4.The two countries reiterate their pledge to uphold human life, human rights, and the protection of religious and ethnic communities.

      5.Turkey and the US are committed to D-ISIS/DAESH activities in northeast Syria. This will include coordination on detention facilities and internally displaced persons from formerly ISIS/DAESH-controlled areas, as appropriate.

      6.Turkey and the US agree that counter-terrorism operations must target only terrorists and their hideouts, shelters, emplacements, weapons, vehicles and equipment.

      7.The Turkish side expressed its commitment to ensure safety and well-being of residents of all population centers in the safe zone controlled by the Turkish Forces (safe zone) and reiterated that maximum care will be exercised in order not to cause harm to civilians and civilian infrastructure.

      8.Both countries reiterate their commitment to the political unity and territorial integrity of Syria and UN-led political process, which aims at ending the Syrian conflict in accordance with UNSCR 2254.

      9.The two sides agreed on the continued importance and functionality of a safe zone in order to address the national security concerns of Turkey, to include the re-collection of YPG heavy weapons and the disablement of their fortifications and all other fighting positions.

      10.The safe zone will be primarily enforced by the Turkish Armed Forces and the two sides will increase their cooperation in all dimensions of its implementation.
      The Turkish side will pause Operation Peace Spring in order to allow the withdrawal of YPG from the safe zone within 120 hours. Operation Peace Spring will be halted upon completion of this withdrawal.

      11.Once Operation Peace Spring is paused, the US agrees not to pursue further imposition of sanctions under the Executive Order of October 14, 2019, Blocking Property and Suspending Entry of Certain Persons Contributing to the Situation in Syria, and will work and consult with Congress, as appropriate, to underline the progress being undertaken to achieve peace and security in Syria, in accordance with UNSCR 2254.

      12.Once Operation Peace Spring is halted as per paragraph 11 the current sanctions under the aforementioned Executive Order shall be lifted.

      13.Both parties are committed to work together to implement all the goals outlined in this Statement.

    I’ve heard reference to the small number of our troops that were left in Syria (up until a few days ago) as a “tripwire”. I wonder if the plan had been for us to get drawn into a broader conflict when Turkey attacked so Trump could be blamed. Trump got wind of it and pulled them out in time, so now the narrative has changed. Like I said, I wonder….

    Anything is possible with the people we are up against.

      To be fair, people’s signatures when they are very sick can look quite different from their normal healthy signatures. From personal experience. However, the loops of the ‘L’, the ‘J’, and the ‘G’ look distinctly different between the two signatures. And the weird top bar of the ‘C’ on the one on the right and the double dotted ‘I’? If it’s a forgery, couldn’t they get someone who’s better at it?

      I think the problem with Schiff & Company is that they are so used to having the MSM cover for them they never learned to be careful in their falsehoods and fabrications. Not that that matters to the true believers.

      Actually, perhaps neither signature is by cummings own hand. In my law firm years ago, the administrative assistant of a Name Partner who travelled a lot, was trained to trace his signature in reverse, from an underlying paper.

    CECC hearing on Forced Labour, Mass Internment and Social Control In Xin Jiang.

    “Over the last year, Chinese authorities in the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region (XUAR) expanded a system of extrajudicial mass internment camps, arbitrarily detaining one or more million Uyghurs and other Turkic Muslim minorities. New research and reports from international media outlets indicate that officials in the XUAR have instituted a far-reaching system of forced labor, requiring current and former mass internment camp detainees, as well as non-detainees, to work in food and textile production and manufacturing. Uyghur human rights groups, scholars, and international journalists have also documented the widespread forcible displacement of the children of Uyghur and other ethnic minority parents who are either detained or engaged in forced labor.

    The use of mass internment and forced labor, alongside other policies that appear to seek the eradication of traditional cultural and religious practices, contravenes the commitments made by China in signing the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR), including the rights of all peoples to non-discrimination, to free choice of employment, to enjoy just and favorable conditions of work including the right to remuneration, and to take part in cultural life.

    On October 7 and 8, 2019, new U.S. government sanctions targeting Chinese officials, as well as governmental and commercial organizations for having contributed to the severe human rights abuses in the XUAR, were announced.

    This hearing will look at forced labor, mass internment, and social control in the XUAR. Witnesses will provide testimony on forced labor and other egregious human rights abuses, examine how products made in the XUAR’s forced labor camps have entered global supply chains, and provide recommendations to the U.S. Administration and Congress.”

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ USA!
