Rex Tillerson Says Assad Will be Removed Through a Peaceful ‘Political Process’…What Dictator Will Replace Him? [VIDEO]

Published

on

Just days after Secretary of State Rex Tillerson made the ‘shocking’ and ‘outrageous’ comments that the Syrian people should be allowed to choose their leaders, the Trump administration found themselves changing their mind on meddling in the affairs of other countries. It seems the ‘deep state’ is sending a message to the White House that there is no room for principals.

They’re getting the message. Trump is now learning to play the game properly. Expect the harsh media criticism of him and his associates to abate. Not disappear, mind you. It’ll still be there, just not to the degree that we’ve seen from Election Day until now.

Here’s what Secretary of State Rex Tillerson had to say, in part:

“The process by which Assad would leave is something that I think requires an international community effort, both to first defeat ISIS within Syria, to stabilize the Syrian country, to avoid further civil war, and then to work collectively with our partners around the world through a political process that would lead to Assad leaving.”

U.S. media viewers were barraged with video and images of injured, dying, and dead men, women, and children following what the media and government claimed were nerve gas attacks perpetrated by Syrian President Assad.

Without much in the way of investigation, Trump’s now establishment-filled inner circle likely told him that attacking Syria was the only option we have, because we can’t ‘do nothing.’

Most Americans had their heartstrings tugged seeing the horrific images and video footage of children victims. There is absolutely no doubt that whoever was behind those attacks deserves nothing less than a swift execution. We can all agree with that.

But that’s not the issue.

The media used that footage to gin up America’s emotional support for military action. They do that sort of thing whenever there’s a mass shooting, especially one involving children (think Sandy Hook). They use those images and video footage to elicit an emotional response by Americans that justifies harsh gun control. But we all know that gun control is not the answer. That doesn’t mean we don’t care about children, as much as posturing liberals in the media and political arena claim to the contrary (even though they’re the ones who support abortion…go figure).

The issue is why is this the responsibility of the United States? I get that these chemical weapons attacks show the perpetrator – assuming the media is correct that Assad is behind them – to be a brutal dictator with no regard for human life. That doesn’t mean that the United States should invest militarily yet again in another conflict with a Middle Eastern country that has posed no threat to us. 

Sudan is one of the worst countries in the world when it comes to human rights violations. Look at how the Human Rights Watch describes them:

Armed conflicts continue between government forces and armed opposition groups, particularly in Darfur, Southern Kordofan and Blue Nile states. Government forces have attacked, killed, and raped civilians and looted and destroyed their property in violation of the laws of war, and forced hundreds of thousands to flee their homes. Authorities arbitrarily detain political activists and subject them to ill-treatment and torture; use unnecessary lethal force against anti-government protesters; and censor the media.  Despite these abuses and the International Criminal Court warrant for the arrest of President Omar al-Bashir for crimes in Darfur, the United States and European Union pledged renewed support for the Sudanese government citing cooperation in counterterrorism and migration control.

And that’s not to mention the extreme persecution (murder, rape, slavery) suffered by Sudanese Christians at the hands of the government and government-backed Islamic groups.

So, since the United States is reacting to Assad’s alleged human rights abuses, are we also to do the same with Sudan? When is Trump going to order a military strike against Sudan to ‘send them a message?’ Probably when the media starts flooding their networks with images and video footage of injured, dying, and dead Sudanese Christian men, women, and children in order to gin up America’s emotional support for a war with Sudan. So, probably never.

Don’t get me wrong. I don’t want to bomb Sudan. My point is that the United States can’t be this policeman of the world, especially when it’s applied so inconsistently. All of a sudden, our newly appointed cabinet members, even Trump himself, are saying that we can’t just look the other way when Assad commits these atrocities against his own people. So, why is it perfectly fine for use to ‘look the other way’ when it’s another country doing far worse things to their people?

Oh, that’s right. United States politicians don’t actually care. It’s not the supposed murderous actions by Assad that U.S. politicians care about. They just don’t like Assad. He’s standing in the way of the U.S.’s plans. And so far, he has refused to step down. So, the U.S. is upping its game.

Once Assad is gone, U.S. policymakers (or the CIA?) will be able to install a dictator (probably far worse than Assad) who will do the U.S.’s bidding. I know Trump campaigned and won on being an ‘outsider.’ But his administration’s actions this week have shown that they’re now officially insiders.

Singer Issues Vulgar Statement After His Song Was Played During Phoenix Trump Rally

The frontman for Panic! At The Disco, slammed the Trump campaign after Trump walked out to one of the band’s songs before his event in Phoenix, Arizona.

“Dear Trump Campaign, F— you. You’re not invited. Stop playing my song. No thanks, Brendon Urie, Panic! At The Disco & company,” he tweeted.

In a second tweet, Urie addressed “Everyone Else,” urging them to “vote this monster out” and added a link to help people get registered to vote.

“Dear Everyone Else, Donald Trump represents nothing we stand for. The highest hope we have is voting this monster out in November.”

“Donald Trump represents nothing we stand for. The highest hope we have is voting this monster out in November. ” Since the left stands for violence, assault, arson, murder, killing babies, beating up old people, stealing, destroying people’s homes, destroying businesses yeah, they’re correct. President Donald Trump stands for none of that.

WJ:

As the presidential election nears, celebrities across the nation have been voicing their disapproval for President Trump more than normal.

Last week, rock-and-roll legend Bruce Springsteen criticized Trump on his SiriusXM show, and most recently, pop-rock band Panic! at the Disco’s Brendon Urie voiced his opinions on the president.

Following Trump’s rally in Phoenix, Arizona, on Tuesday evening, Urie discovered that the band’s hit song “High Hopes” was played during the event.

Urie published a strongly-worded tweet aimed at Trump and his campaign that same night. More

Funny how these musicians sell-outs get mad when people buy the rights to use their music. Did Brendon Urie consider that this is the first time many Americans have ever heard of him?

Michael Flynn Victory: Federal Appeals Court Rules District Judge Must Drop Charges

A huge win for Michael Flynn!

Published

on

By

A federal appeals court today ordered a lower court to allow the case against former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn to be dismissed, as requested by the Justice Department.

The abrupt ending came in a 2-1 ruling and order from judges on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia.

BI:

A three-judge panel on the US Court of Appeals in Washington, DC, ordered the federal judge overseeing the case against Michael Flynn to dismiss the prosecution on Wednesday, marking another big twist for the most high-profile former Donald Trump official to face criminal charges from special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe.

In a 2-1 decision, the appeals court also overturned US District Judge Emmet Sullivan’s decision to bring in a retired federal judge and veteran prosecutor to argue against the Justice Department’s motion to dismiss Flynn’s case. Sullivan had scheduled a July 16 hearing to weigh whether or not to toss out the case against President Donald Trump’s former national security adviser.

The appeals court ruled that Sullivan does not have the authority to prolong Flynn’s prosecution or examine the Justice Department’s motivation for wanting to drop the case.

“This is not the unusual case where a more searching inquiry is justified,” Judge Neomi Rao, a Trump-appointed judge, wrote in the majority opinion. Rao was joined by Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson, an appointee of President George H.W. Bush.

The appeals court’s decision is a major victory for the former national security adviser, whose legal team has argued for months that the government  unfairly targeted him for political reasons. More

The DC Court of Appeals in NOT a bastion of conservatism. They did the right thing. Good for them. That is what Judge Emmet Sullivan gets for being an activist judge instead of an impartial one. Now it’s time to start the process to remove Judge Sullivan for abuse of power and political bias.

Capital Hill Autonomous Zone Beefs Up Border Wall, Deports Conservative Visitors

This all sounds a little…fascist…doesn’t it?

Published

Something strange is occurring in Seattle, and it is quickly becoming the talk of the nation.

In the Capital Hill district of the Washington State capital, police were forced to abandon the 13th Precinct some days ago, during hearty demonstrations spawned from the death of George Floyd at the hands of the Minneapolis police.  In their absence, protesters took control of approximately six city blocks, renaming the area the “Capital Hill Autonomous Zone”, and warning visitors that they would be “leaving the USA” as they stepped into Free Cap Hill.

And while this quasi-secession appears to be led by the far left, they are seemingly resorting to some fairly “fascist” tactics…at least by their own standards.

Seattle, Washington’s Capitol Hill Autonomous Zone (CHAZ) — formed by anarchists, Antifa members, and Black Lives Matter activists — has set up a border wall surrounding its perimeters and is seemingly conducting ‘deportations’.

CHAZ, a six-square block autonomous zone, has clear and precise borders made up of mostly vehicle barriers and various forms of fencing.

Photos from CHAZ show the border controls:

Furthermore, there appears to be an issue with free speech within the CHAZ.

On Thursday, reporter Julio Rosas captured a moment where CHAZ occupants kicked out a man who said he was a pro-life activist and had been live-streaming from inside the autonomous zone.

The man was taunted by a mob as he was kicked out. The process was far less technical and impartial than the deportation process of the United States federal government.

Protesters in other US cities have also begun to consider creating their own “autonomous zones”, including in Nashville, Tennessee.

Next Trump Rally’s Date and Location Offends Kamala Harris

The White House has pushed back against the suggestion that the timing and the location were purposeful. 

Published

on

Despite the risk that still exists due to coronavirus, President Trump is itching to get back out on the campaign trail.  This is where he excels.  It’s his comfort zone.  The opposite could not be truer for his opponent in 2020, either, which means that the Trump campaign is almost certainly relying on these tour de force performances to put distance between these candidates.

In Tulsa, on Friday, June 19th, Trump will return to the stage, much to the chagrin of his loyal base.

Kamala Harris, however, is not at all amused.

Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.) torched President Trump on Thursday over the president’s plan to hold a campaign rally in Tulsa, Okla., on Juneteenth.

In a tweet, Harris linked to a Los Angeles Times story that noted that Trump’s June 19 rally would take place in a city that was the site of a racist riot and massacre in 1921.

“This isn’t just a wink to white supremacists—he’s throwing them a welcome home party,” the senator tweeted.

June 19th, also known as Juneteenth, is a day that many Americans celebrate the end of slavery, as it corresponds with the day that the last slaves in Texas were read the emancipation proclamation back in 1865.

The White House has pushed back against the suggestion that the timing and the location were purposeful.

Trump Rally Attendees Will Sign COVID-19 Liability Agreement Before Event

Published

on

President Trump will be returning to full-throated campaigning in just a weeks’ time out in Oklahoma, and at a time in which much of the nation is again concerned about coronavirus.

In several states, the numbers aren’t looking good.  Thanks to Americans’ generally annoyed take on COVID-19, and public gatherings for Memorial Day and protest, cases of the novel coronavirus are on the rise in several parts of the country.

Given the situation, President Trump’s team will be asking attendees at the upcoming Tulsa rally to sign a special waiver.

The sign-up page for tickets to President Donald Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa next week includes something that hasn’t appeared ahead of previous rallies: a disclaimer noting that attendees “voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19” and agree not to hold the campaign or venue liable should they get sick.

Trump’s reelection campaign announced Thursday that the president’s next “Make America Great Again” rally will be held June 19 at the BOK Center.

The intent of the waiver was quite clear.

At the bottom of the registration page for tickets to the upcoming Trump campaign rally is a disclaimer notifying attendees that “by clicking register below, you are acknowledging that an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present.”

“By attending the Rally, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold Donald J. Trump for President, Inc.; BOK Center; ASM Global; or any of their affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury,” the notice states.
President Trump recently sparred with the Governor of North Carolina over health-related restrictions he was placing on the Republican National Convention, with the war of words eventually causing the RNC to move out of North Carolina to an as-of-yet-unknown location.
