Trump pulling troops from Syria has been controversial at best, and many people on both the Left and the Right have been concerned, angry, outraged, you name it. There are some talking heads saying this move will be far more damaging to Trumps presidency than even the fake impeachment nonsense Democrats have been pushing for three years. Breitbarts John Hayward put together a pretty eye-opening thread on Trumps decision in Syria and its definitely worth a read.
Dems have NO policy, just sheer LAZINESS: John Haywards thread on Trump pulling troops from Syria a definite MUST read
Because spending trillions of dollars on endless wars and getting thousands of our troops killed and maimed has helped the Muslims in the Middle East stop slaughtering each other and has made them love us so much. Oh wait, it hasn’t accomplished anything at all but we should just keep doing it because it brings the new hawks on the Democrat side so much joy.
The War MAchine is the bread and butter of the Ruling Class and the Politicians that do their/our bidding, how dare Trump try to stop the graff, kickbacks and bribe money.
Nancy has a finger at the end of her arm
I’ll bet the money our ‘elites’ can charge for ‘speeches’ in the Middle East has gone waaaaaay down...
Remember in November 2020!
MAGA! Now KAG! (Keep America Great!)
"The Holy Grail of organized crime is to control government power to tax." me
"The 16th Amendment effectively repealed the involuntary servitude aspect of the 13th Amendment imo, evidenced by unconstitutional federal taxes." me
"13th Amendment, Section 1:
Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude [emphasis added], except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."
The Congress shall have power to lay and collect taxes on incomes, from whatever source derived, without apportionment among the several States, and without regard to any census or enumeration."
"Congress is not empowered to tax for those purposes which are within the exclusive province of the States." Justice John Marshall, Gibbons v. Ogden, 1824.
"The constitutionally undefined political parties are basically rival, corrupt voter unions, union dues paid by means of unconstitutional federal taxes. me
"The smart crooks long ago figured out that getting themselves elected to federal office to make unconstitutional tax laws to fill their pockets is a much easier way to make a living than robbing banks." me
"Federal career lawmakers probably laugh all the way to the bank to deposit bribes for putting loopholes for the rich and corporations in tax appropriations laws, Congress actually not having the express constitutional authority to make most appropriations laws where domestic policy is concerned. Such laws are based on stolen state powers and uniquely associated stolen state revenues." me
Warren, boxed into a corner, had nothing meaningful to say beyond vague platitudes about getting out of the Middle East "the smart way" and complaints about Trump helping ISIS "get another foothold, a new lease on life." ...CNN moved very quickly along to Buttigieg, who was allowed to simultaneously claim he opposes "endless wars" but also call for an endless American presence in the worst quagmire on the planet. Buttigieg, a military veteran, abandoned years of Democrat Party dogma about Afghanistan being the "good war" to argue that Syria is the only place American troops should be stationed... Buttigieg claimed pulling out of Syria would be "taking away what makes America America" and would make "the world a more dangerous place," which oddly enough is exactly the opposite of what Democrats said when they urged a pullout from Iraq... he claimed he would not be able to look Afghan civilians or soldiers in the eye after Trump's pullout from Syria, which is funny because not three minutes earlier he said he wanted to pull out from Afghanistan...
None of the Democrats was asked to present a war plan for fighting Turkey or discuss how much the U.S. depends on Turkish bases for operations in the Middle East. None of them, not even Biden, was pressed on how the Obama administration set the table for current events... And of course, CNN would not dream of asking the Democrat candidates -- several of whom are sitting senators -- why their caucus did not authorize military force against Turkey to protect the Kurds, instead spending all of its time on an impeachment crusade against President Trump. Trump said he wanted to pull troops out of Syria almost a year ago, and Erdogan was threatening to invade long before that. The Democrats had plenty of time to pass the appropriate congressional resolutions and send a strong message to Turkey, but that would have involved putting real political capital on the line instead of sniping from the sidelines.
