Mitch McConnell Warns President Trump Not to Remove Troops from Syria, Or Else….

The back-story here is likely worse than the obvious.  In a tweet today Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell announces his resolution warning President Trump not to remove troops from Syria or Afghanistan.  [Not coincidentally the two countries visited by Speaker Pelosi and Adam Schiff last weekend.]

(Source)

Of course the obvious, albeit unwritten “or else” part, is Senator McConnell threatening to join with with Senator Lindsey Graham and support President Trump’s impeachment.

We cannot say we were not warned [ SEE HERE ] it was obvious immediately after the Democrats won the House in 2018 that McConnell was breathing a sigh of relief.  [Also reminder, the SSCI doesn’t run an operation against the President and the Leader of the Senate not know about it…. just sayin’.]

    I have an idea the President saw this coming. Hasn’t he already gotten the 28 out of northern Syria and taken to Iraq? Wasn’t Mick Mulvany called out for that in the press conference? Ha, if I were Nancy I would be afraid to step back in this country!

    No time to wait for primaries and elections to deal with some of these traitors. Force them to resign. Turn over the all the rocks. Expose their crimes, their sexploits, and the bribes. Watch how fast many suddenly find a need to “spend more time with family.”

    The Congress bitches about military action without a declaration of war, but they have a fit if the President tries to withdraw troops. If our soldiers are going to stay the Congress needs to pass a resolution stating their support for just that.

    The truly sad thing is only a handful of the legislature cares about the Syrian people. Most of our politicians care about campaign dollars or the senior politicians look for side deals like the Biden family.

    As if on cue about bringing US Troops Home, from region;
    1. From early in thread, Jordan agrees with the President.
    2. Iraq announced today, the Troops drawn out Syrian cannot stay in Iraq, per the current SOFA between the US and Iraq.

    For those who actually pay attention to US strategy, untangling US Forces from the region gives the President a massive boost in the degree of responsive or act first flexibility in executing a two pronged operational concept (Economic + Military) in realizing strategic goals.

    The Government Party’s demand is simple: your compliance will be rewarded.

    You have to approach this from the mindset of, say, Paul Ryan, and the rest of the 2017 “retirees”. Their express purpose was to throw the election to Democrats and open the door to impeachment. Those “retirees” all know they’re going to get super rich as lobbyists and media consultants and whatnot.

    The Government Party decided YEARS AGO that elections are irrelevant, and that elections have been irrelevant for going on 25 years now. Trump broke through the firewalls as the American Public, stupidly, believed that elections are still how things are decided in this country.

    The Trump Solution to the McConnell/Government Party/Permanent War Party problem is to simply write a letter to Congress, both houses, stating that US Troops will be redeployed stateside until and unless Congress issues a declaration of war against {your favorite enemy of the moment here}. Make them vote on it, make them fund it, and then launch a war of such epic ferocity that it would take 100 years for the sand to cool down enough for humans to live there again.

    Then, redeploy all troops stateside. Hold a parade.

      There is no way that Mitch and his friends will vote to convict Trump if Trump persists in withdrawing troops from Syria. Besides committing personal political suicide, the entire GOP will go the way of the Whigs. The GOP now belongs to Trump. He has a 95% approval from GOP voters. Trump resuscitated a dying party. The GOPe will find themselves as chiefs without Indians if they go against Trump.

    I wonder if this is part of what the witch pelosi meant when she threatened

    McConnell has never been on the side of the American people instead choosing
    the globalist chamber of communists for the money. And now
    he is feeling like a tyrant standing between Trump and the marxist democrat party
    saying do what I tell you or else.
    And McConnell is screaming at you and me “I don’t give a crap what the American people want,
    I’m in charge!”

    I thought McConell was in a primary race. If true, not a smart thing to do. I guarantee that POTUS has info on him so if I were he, I would tread most carefully with his threats.

    Since the House impeachment plan is causing issues they may be passing the baton to Mitch and his crew. Using Syria as a fallback. Burr is calling the past few witnesses that just went before the House to appear before his committee.

    It really is time for POTUS supporters to go to the mat and be very loud and clear that this will not stand. Without violence of course. Do not rely on busses for transportation, we have seen what happens there.

    POTUS has an excellent ground game and if he puts out his support for Replicant alternatives in Mitch and Lindy’s races they can kiss their cozy seats goodbye.

      They should know that they’re risking violence. I’m not saying that we should threaten. Only that they should realize the consequences of taking away all of the peaceful means of resolving our grievances. I consistently tell others to wait, to attempt a peaceful resolution, and I maintain that. It’s not time. But when the other cards have all been dealt, it will always be there. The final card in the uniparty deck is assassination. Ours is bloody revolution. Pray that it doesn’t come to either end, but we will not be ruled. The uniparty should be aware that they’re risking everything by their own actions. Take away even the illusion of the vote and what is left to lose?

    I think McConnell is crapping his pants and this tweet and resolution is the result of his puppet masters telling him in no uncertain terms that he better toe the line. I hope he decides not to run again.

    I think the dems, the uniparty, the gope, and the swamp, oops repeated myself, are crapping their pants. I think President Trump knows and they are all running scared. My two cents.

      I read an article weeks ago pointing out this strategy. The impeachment noise historically since the 2016 election ratchets up to crazy when PDJT starts mentioning “bringing home the troops”. The point of the article was this might be a preemptive move to hold the “ace up his sleeve” knowing how deceptive the Republicans in the senate are. The author, I forget who, was one of the few as with Sundance who recognize the Republicans for who they really are at this point in time.

This would appear to be a conflict of interest,” said Mansour.

    This was a bad chess move on Turtle’s part.

    IMO Its not an implicit impeachment conviction threat against PDJT because Articles will in all likelihood never reach the Senate. Gave the several reasons why this is likely so a couple of hours ago near the end of todays Presidential thread. Pelosi is in chess terms checked, and her only way out is a lynching slog that never comes to a conclusion but helps PDJT in 2020.

    So it is what it is,McConnell rallying neocons. There only two outcomes, either useful for PFJT next moves on a ‘brand’ (End endless wars) this kerfuffle helps him further establish:

    1. It passes. In which case PDJT has good reason to argue for capturing more of the Senate with new MAGA senators in 2020. Rally cry will be ‘Senate didn’t want to end endless wars. Vote for X to replace Dem Y.’ Gets toward cloture proof 60+ in 2020. We have 53, need 7. Just looked specifics up: Recapture Al in special election with a good candidate. James should knock out Peters in MI. Somebody good can knock out Smith in MN based on last week’s rally. Udall isnt running for reelection in NM; a good candidate can capture that seat. That is likely plus 4 to 57. Shaheen may be vulnerable in NH to a good candidate. That would be plus 5 to 58.

    2. It fails. In which case minority Neocons are exposed. Sense of the Senate supports PDJT ending endless wars.
