President Donald Trump took to the airwaves today to announce the greatest military victory for since the killing of Bid Laden. Trump announced that U.S. special operations soldiers had raided an area where Baghdadi was thought to be, conducting an operation, they were able kill many of ISIS fighters and chased Baghdadi into a tunnel, where according to Trump he was crying and whimpering as a he detonated a suicide vest killing himself, and three of his children. The President said no U.S. Troops were injured or killed in the operation.
President Trump had listed Baghdadi as the number one security threat to the U.S. intelligence agencies. Trump said he was placed as the number one target, and that killing or capturing him would be of the highest priority. Baghdadi was the founder and leader of ISIS. This is a big feather in the cap of the Trump administration.
President Trump had indicated a few weeks ago that U.S. forces would be withdrawing from Syria in the face of a Turkish invasion at the condemnation of many on both parties. Most recently in Syria, U.S. forces secured the oil field in Syria to protect them from being used by ISIS. A permanent ceasefire was signed into effect for northern Syria allowing Kurdish forces to withdraw intact. Many critics of Trump said he was leaving the Kurds to their demise at the hands of Turkey.
President Trump thanked Russia, Syria, Turkey, and Iraq. Trump also thanked the Syrian Kurds specifically during his speech for a specific action. With Baghdadi dead the head has been cut off ISIS, their territory gone, their leader dead, and their ideology so radical that many Muslims shun it, ISIS may indeed die now.
With Barrack and Michelle Obama signing book deals with Penguin Random House, for 65 million dollars in 2017, this makes one of the largest book deals in history. With former Vice President Joe Biden under scrutiny for Quid Pro Quo, let us not forget why Obama might be silent as a church mouse right now, He sold American Education to George Soros for an eventual book deal?
Penguin Random House is owned by Pearson Publishing. Pearson is one of the largest publishing companies in the world with an estimated 8 billion dollars in worldwide sales, half of that in America. Pearson was the company that was awarded the “Common Core” contract in the United States, Despite it’s failures in 2012, 2013, and 2014. Both aforementioned companies are owned by Bertelsmann, The German media conglomerate. Never guess who is one of the major investors in Bertelsmann? That’s right George Soros, who said ‘The World Needs Europe And Its Values.”
Despite it’s many failures and incompetent actions Pearson continued to be awarded contract after contract under Obama. In 2012 New York –More than two dozen errors found in New York State tests developed by Pearson, 2012 New York–More than 7,000 New York City elementary and middle school students wrongly blocked from graduation by inaccurate “preliminary scores” on Pearson tests, 2012 Mississippi – Pearson pays $623,000 for for five students and wrongly lowered scores for 121 others for improperly scoring tests and failing to graduate kids on time, In 2013 Pearson improperly graded tests that kept nearly 5,000 kids from the gifted and exceptional programs in New York, 2014 in Virginia, Pearson wrongfully sent out improper scored cards that did not show proper proficiency. Yet they continued to make 4 billion dollars a year under Obama’s reign.
The Penguin Group is a trade book publisher. It is owned by Pearson, the global education and publishing company, and Bertelmann, the German media conglomerate. The new company was created by a merger that was finalised on 1 July 2013, with Bertelsmann owning 53% of the joint venture, and Pearson controlling the remaining 47%.
In Mar 2017 Maya Mavjee, President and Publisher of Penguin Random House’s Crown Publishing Group, announced they will publish in the U.S. and Canada two separate books to be written by former President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, respectively paying them 65 million dollars.
In 2015 George Soros owned 317,534 shares of Netflix and online movie watching platform, which makes it one of the companies largest shareholders. In 2018, after leaving the Presidency, Barrack and Michelle created their own movie production company called Higher Ground Productions, they then went on to sign a multi-million dollar deal with Netflix to produce films. Now we all know why the Obama’s are so quiet on the Quid Pro Quo Biden story.
President Trump has long been critical of the previous administrations transparency when it came to military matters, Former President Obama would tell the enemy what he was going to do, or what he wanted to do, and often times this was thwarted or just outright ignored.
What we the American people do not know is that Turkey likely was already going to go into Northern Syria whether we were there or not, and what Trump may not ever get credit for is avoiding World War III.
Having served in both the Army and Marine Corps, I can tell you that a major offensive is not something you just launch, and the fact that Turkey launched theirs only hours after Trump announced he was withdrawing forces from the area only shows that he was most likely given advanced warning by our NATO ally as is required by international law that they were going in, he is not required to tell us the “secret sauce” of how the whole thing gets done, only that it is being done.
Trump’s withdrawal was likely an effort to remove Americans from harms way from an inevitable attack by Turkish forces who were likely trying to establish a safety buffer between themselves and the Kurdish forces of which they have had internal problems with inside of Turkey. Vice President Pence and Secretary Pompeo announcing that they have a ceasefire in place just goes to show you that Trump seemed to already have a plan in place or sent in the right men for the job at the right time.
Almost every Democrat, and some Republicans in both the House and the Senate abandoned Trump on this matter only moments after learning of our troops withdrawal. With the house passing a resolution condemning the removal. Just as with the impeachment inquiry, people in D.C. are too quick to jump without allowing Trump to do his job, he certainly made them look foolish again.
With the ceasefire in place Turkey has agreed to halt, and allow Kurds to withdraw to “safezones.” With Trump having imposed sanctions on Turkey as part of the pressure to get Turkey to the table, sanctions can be lifted as long as Turkey complies with the ceasefire.
“If we didn’t go this unconventional, tough-love approach … they couldn’t have gotten it done,” Trump added.
Trump touted the ceasefire at a campaign rally later Thursday night, again calling his approach “unconventional.”
“I said, you’re going to have to let them fight for a little while,” he said, adding “like two kids in a lot, you gotta let them fight, then you pull them apart.”
Yet, Senator Mitt Romney (R) Utah, was still overly critical in stating that Trump was still far from victory. Wanting hearings on why we pulled out of Syria.
Just moments after the invasion of Syria Trump dismissed Turkey’s invasion and said the fight was over land that “has nothing to do with us.”
“If Turkey goes into Syria, that’s between Turkey and Syria,” he told reporters in the Oval Office. “It’s not between Turkey and the United States.” With many vocal opponents of our troops involvement often times saying that U.S. Troops have no place in the region. Senator Rand Paul (R) Kentucky saying that if Trump is moving to stop endless wars then we should stand with him.
NBC news even misquoted Trump by saying
When according to the White House the actual statement was ” They have a problem at the border-it’s not our border” as well as saying This is not between Turkey and the U.S. NBC has printed a retraction.
Other Evidence shows that an American Military base in Syria had items left behind by troops who would have taken it with them if they had been scheduled a normal withdrawal, such as personal items of the troops, military supplies, tents, and entertainment. Further evidence of a hasty withdrawal and a demonstration that President Trump likely avoided a major war.
Democratic Presidential Candidate Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii said that Trump has the blood of Kurds on his hands, but then again so do many of the Presidents before him, but that she was also tired of the endless regime change wars and that the U.S. should stop fighting them. I wonder how she feels now that Kurdish blood is not being spilt and that Trump likely avoided WWIII.
A powerful house Democrat who served the District where Baltimore is situated has died after battling health problems. Cummings served in Congress for more than two decades, most recently a vocal critic of President Trump.
In Tribute to Cummings many years of service the White House lowered the flag to half staff. Even though Cummings was one of the primary Representatives in the Impeachment Inquiry into President Trump, the President was very respectful to his family during this time.
Cummings was the Chair of the House Oversight Committee, New York Rep. Carolyn Maloney will take over that position as she is the next most senior.
The two often times competing efforts to recall Kate Brown seemed to have destroyed each other, With Bill Currier and Michael Cross both filing for recall of the Oregon Governor, each of them seperate.
Talking with my citizens during the recall process, all seemed confused that there were two recall efforts, and often it was brought up why wasn’t there just one concerted effort? One possible answer is that a lack of communication between the two individuals produced a divided effort. Another, often talked about one was that Brown knew the recall effort was happening and pushed the state to allow both petitions to go forward as separate matters, I think one could make a legal argument to combine the signatures from both into one for those who did not sign both.
Having failed in it’s effort to recall Brown Bill Currier, the leader of the Oregon GOP has said he will try again in 2020. Brown has consistently went against the will of the voters in Oregon ignoring previously failed measures brought before Oregon voters and signing actions into Executive Order using her limited authority as Oregon Governor almost like a dictatorship. One such instance was the fact that Oregon voters voter overwhelmingly not to allow illegal aliens to the United States to get an Oregon Drivers License, yet Brown went ahead and authorized this for most illegals anyway.
I think the straw that broke the camel’s back was when Brown pushed for the passage of the Cap and Trade, a contentious bill that would hamstring the Oregon logging industry. Brown has said is considering again using her Executive Authority to get the law in place.
Whatever we do in Oregon, we need to do it in 2020, quit messing around and communicate with each other Oregon. Whether your Constitutionalist like me, a Republican, or even a more liberal Libertarian, hell even an estimated 30% of the signatures on both recall petitions were Democrats, we need to take our state back, before it becomes the shithole of California/New York.
Hunter Biden, the Son of former Vice President Joe Biden has announced that he is stepping down from his position with a Chinese Financial Firm. Hunter’s attorney made a statement that Hunter’s foreign work is interfering with his Father’s 2020 Presidential Campaign. Hunter, through his attorney announced that he will not accept or do any foreign work should his Father be elected.
Hunter has been the center of a controversy regarding when his Father was the point person of U.S. Energy Policy in Ukraine and Hunter took a job on the board of Burisma, a major Ukrainian energy company. Hunter got this job just days after his Father was placed as the person in charge by then President Obama. Hunter received 50k per month as a salary. According to the Rudy Giuliani Vice President Joe Biden received 900k from Burisma in lobbying fees.
Former Vice President Biden has not been taking the bad press very well, by sending letters to multiple media sources disputing their reporting of the incident, it would seem that the closer the media gets to this the more uncomfortable the former Vice President gets.
President Trump made a phone call on July 25th of 2019 to the Prime Minister of Ukraine, where he asks for help in investigating the possible corruption of the Biden family, Evidently Democrats did not like Trump using his authority under article 2 of the U. S. Constitution as the nations chief law enforcement officer and diplomat to gather both cooperation and evidence into possible corruption by Joe Biden and Hunter Biden.
Democrats under Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff are panicked, as Joe Biden was the then Democratic frontrunner fell behind to Senator Elizabeth Warren when this corruption Pelosi and Schiff decided they had enough of Trump looking into Democrat corruption and went with an impeachment inquiry, without a vote, and without allowing any Republican witnesses to testify, they are doing this in secret.
Why do impeachment in secret? Because three times votes of impeachment have failed in Congress, and thirty Democrats who are in districts that Trump won would have to go on record as going against the people’s choice without a fair and judicial process. Those Democrats face re-election in 2020, and likely would face a tough time against the voters they betray.
