    Re: Seg 4.
    I believe Trump was driven by his emotions on seeing the gassed children.
    I’m not sure I like to see my President acting on emotions.
    Having said that, I appreciateed:
    1. Warning the Russians.
    2. Limiting the attack mostly to relecent things at the Airport and not going after people.

    I have long considered target people by use of drones to be a war crime; especially when many innocent civilians are also involved.

      Good Morning Professor,

      He could have been driven by seeing the pictures of the gassed children.

      Agression in an attempt to illustrate to the entire world that we and others would not stand for the use of chemical weapons is, in my opinion, certainly not an imoral act.

      Would I prefer that the U.S. simply stay out of the insane Middle East, yes I would. But then again when the players over there utilize horrific weapons to slaughter humanity, I would think that moral steps must be taken.

      Also showing those who support these actions our willingness to do whatever it takes, even risking a dramatic war, does certainly show resolve against imorality.

        Isis was tweeting about the attack 24 hours before it took place. As a veteran and a former intelligence officer I can say with 100% confidence, it was a false flag operation. The US didn’t give a damn about 500,000 kids under 5 killed by the sanctions against Iraq in 1996 and they don’t give a damn about a few kids now.

        If you believe Assad was behind the attack you have to believe he would attack civilians when he could have attacked ISIS with the same weapons and that he would use chemical weapons that really don’t have much effect when he was winning. That’s not possible. Assad was not behind the attack and Syria is not America’s war.

        How many more American kids have to die fighting wars for Israel?

          Sure it’s not James Moriarty, from Conan-Doyle fame? If you were an intelligence officer, as you claim, you must not have been very good at it. Usually facts make a report – if you are what you say you are, you must understand chemical weapons handling procedures, movement, loading and release authorities are complex, well understood by the IC and verifiable. You make no case, present no facts, and your arguments are unbalanced. 100%? Never happens, Sherlock. Read something that makes sense:

            When you have 832 missions in combat you can start giving me a lecture. 2013 was a false flag operation to blame Assad for the chemical attack that was done by the “rebels” and this last attack is so obviously a false flag operation that to accept it at face value is beyond absurd.

            There are no facts verifying your opinion any more than there are verifiable facts supporting the concept that the Russians hacked the DNC. The US got into WW I based on a false flag operation, the US got into WW II based on a false flag operation, we got into Vietnam based on a false flag operation and now without any investigation we kill Syrians to prevent them from killing Syrians

            Given that the US has started 82% of the wars since 1945, just how many more do you need to watch before you realize something is dead wrong?

            So Assad attacked a civilian target rather than a military target when he was winning the war in spite of fighting Turkey, the US, the UK, France and Israel. Nobody except perhaps you is quite stupid enough to believe that.

          Burden of proof is on McKinney and he has failed. You can’t honestly fight a dictator like Assad while building a dictatorship at home. In this case, Trump has ignored the Constitution and the principles upon which it is based, like checks and balances. Committing an act of war without a declaration of war by the people as expressed through their Congress is evil and lawless. All of McKinney’s talk about chemical weapons and the complexities associated with their use may be true but is a distraction from the real issue: it isn’t right for one man by himself to commit 350 million of his fellow citizens to a war which could cost untold amounts of treasure and blood. Right must be done right or it is wrong.

            You’re right and besides this country can’t afford any more warmongering. In case no one’s notice the good ol’ USA is 20 trillion in debt with unfunded liabilities in the hundreds of trillions and adding to all this at a frightening pace. And this is does not include all the state, county and city gooberment debt and unfunded liabilities.

            The finances alone make all this warmongering totally insane. Bottom line, we can’t afford any more career Deep State swamp creatures like McKinney. This country should get the hell out of Syria and the hundreds of other countries it is warmongering and meddling in. Any decent human with even half a brain should be able to understand this and act accordingly.

            Morning Wayne,

            This is getting interesting and I will have a talk with Jim. I have spent a lot of time with him in the past and he is a man of principal with solid credentials as is his wife who is no slouch in her own right.

            I don’t believe that Trump committed the population of our country to a war with this action.

            If the facts are correct ( notice I said if) regarding Assad’s use of chemical weapons, I spersonally believe that we did the right thing particularly given the fact that the evidence as to the origin of the Syrian attack seem to be conclusively correct.

          • On April 9, 2017 at 11:39 am,
            Wayne says:

            Trump did commit the population of our country to a war. Who builds the missiles? Who pays for them? Who delivers them? Who pays for the delivery systems?

            In the case of Trump’s action, it doesn’t matter if Assad used chemical weapons on his people. Here is the Madison:

            If Tyranny and Oppression come to this land, it will be in the guise of fighting a foreign enemy.

            The means of defense against foreign danger historically have become the instruments of tyranny at home.

            No nation could preserve its freedom in the midst of continual warfare.

            Of all the enemies of public liberty, war is perhaps the most to be dreaded, because it comprises and develops the germ of every other.

            Excellent point and quote, Wayne.

            Trump shows all signs of wanting to commit us to a war with Iran as well. The US has done far more evil to Iran than Iran has done to the US. Furthermore, the US started it with the CIA coup in 1953 that removed their chosen leader, a good man, and imposed the brutal Shah on them.

            Jim McKinney says:

            Thankfully, your points are easily refuted – as I am very concerned of dictatorship as well, and have sworn to defend our constitution, not a person.

            The 1973 “Congressional” War Powers Act gives any President authority to act immediately, requires the Pres. to give Congress 48 hour notification AFTER the act, and authority to keep forces engage for up to 60 days without congressional approval – the President has notified congress, and if Congress chooses, they can withdrawal financial support in 60 days. The 2001/02 AUMF were Obama’s justification for military intervention and Air Strikes in Syria since 2014 – President Trump has not committed to a new war, though this action may, like any situation, make a new problem. Or it may make a statement, stopping a bigger escalation.

            On balance, I believe stopping chem weapons use now (regardless of who had them,) and sending an immediate message chemical weapons are not acceptable was well worth the possible hand-wringing, debate and inaction we have seen for 8 years. The lawfully elected President of the United States, elected to represent 350 million Americans, took bold action in the best interest of our Nation to stop the use of chemical weapons in a combat theater where U.S. troops have been operating for years prior to his election.

            This is not a new war, and it is not separate from civilization’s battle with fanatical Islamist extremists. Wishing that reality away or hiding will not stop a true religious dictatorship from taking you or your family’s life in the future in, if left unchecked.

            There is a lot of screaming from the extreme left and right, but this action will stand in court if pressed – it won’t be, and if there was a hope on the left they would press it. The President’s actions, in my opinion, have reduced the chances of an ever-expanding crisis and halted the perception of U.S. decline in strength. The United States will only survive if Americans are willing to fight for what we have. If we wait for the inevitable fight to come to us, we have already lost.

            If you didn’t notice, with our internal discourse, lack of faith in police and government, expanding political extremism, we are near the tipping point. Establishing a precedent takes guts, and strength – consistent with the President’s campaign promises. Fools who think this fight is someone else’s problem and will just go away without action are just that – fools.

            Mr. McKinney,

            When under attack the first priority is to correctly identify the enemy.

            It is a non-controversial fact that the US has been integrally involved in fomenting radical Islam, e.g. by training Osama bin Laden and the mujahideen in Afghanistan.
            Radical Islam is not the root of the problem. They could never ‘destroy our way of life’ with terrorist acts. We’ve done that for them through such measures as permitting surveillance that would make the KGB jealous. Under whose influence?

            Those who refuse to question the official story of 9/11 are barking up the wrong tree.

            My opinion is that the act in discussion here had nothing to do with globalism and everything to do with an attempt to shut down horrific actions aimed at innocent people.

            2.“We should focus on ISIS, not Syria. You’re going to end up in World War Three over Syria if we listen to Hillary Clinton.”

    Re: Stockholm terror attack.
    A police bomb squad was spotted at the site of the attack, according to an Aftonbladet reporter. The area within a 200 meter radius was reportedly cordoned off. It remains unclear whether the uncovered “bag of explosives” is a blast-ready improvised explosive device.

    The device did not go off, but the suspect received burns from it, SVT reports.

    The head of the Swedish Security Police told Swedish TV4 that he could not immediately confirm the media reports.

    A suspect was detained late Friday in a Stockholm suburb and subsequently arrested, according to Swedish police. The suspect is believed to be the driver of the truck, Reuters reports, citing police spokesman Lars Bystrom.

    Several other people were questioned after the deadly incident, as police believe that there might be other people associated with the suspect.

    Police raided several locations in Stockholm during the night after the incident.

    “The mission has been going on in several different locations with different measures that cannot be described in detail at present,” The Local Sweden quoted police spokesperson Towe Hägg as saying.

    Police are working closely with the Swedish Security Service (Säpo) to find any accomplices of the suspect and potential links with terrorist organizations.

          Is there some standard of thought that people are supposed to maintain to stay on the board?

          I saw what the US was turning into ten years ago and got out while it was still possible. I’m astonished that you fail to see what is going on. As far as the good LTC is concerned, he may be the nicest guy in Washington but the brainwashing that all in the military undergo has yet to wear off.

          It was a false flag operation. The US made an illegal attack on a sovereign nation with a democratically elected president and it was on behalf of Israel. I’m not nearly as anti-Israel as I am anti war crimes. We have helped create 65 million refugees with our middle east policy and any rational person would conclude that our actions have created a disaster.

          There is nothing at all logically that suggests Assad would rationally gas his own people. I am as offended by the attack as you are but I happen to remember that the same people that told us they had proof that Iraq had WMD are the ones who said Assad gassed his people in 2013 and it turned out to be a lie and now they are back.

      The reason Jews went quietly is not a mystery. Jewish leadership betrayed them.
      A more important factor is that both Jewish leadership and Jewish council were dominated by Zionists.

      The Zionists own the banks, everyone is a victim.

            In the big picture, I agree with you Al that this not in Israeli’s/Jew’s interest. But it’s a tangled web. Clearly the Zionists have an agenda of fomenting chaos throughout the Middle East and beyond. My theory, out of this chaos their intention is to form a New Order, one in which they rule absolutely (control over fiat money in a cashless society, etc.).

            As b points out, there are the gangsters, and then there are the normal people–ostensibly their people–that they use as human shields. When the Zionists stabbed Germany in the back in 1916 (, how was this good for the larger group? It wasn’t. All I can conclude is that fanatics are in the driver’s seat with a very long-term agenda.

            As a point of fact, those who benefit least will be Syrians, particularly Christian Syrians.

          And it’s a testament to our stupidity as a nation, given the above facts, that we could allow ourselves to be bamboozled (by Zionist-owned media) into a debate about undue Russian influence on our politics.

The national governments outside of Israel except for those on the neocon target list are their puppets or should I say slaves.

These are the people who slew the prophets , the son of god and the saints and are responsible for those slain upon the earth. It is as plain as a pike staff.

            Starting the story with “jesus” is pointless for a couple reasons, first, nobody listened to him.
            2nd. too much has happened between now and then to be relivant, other than the jews being “booted from everywhere they ever went”.

            At one time I thought the reason was peophilia, but it is usery.
            (read the talmud, pedophilia is perfectly acceptable)

            I posted a rabbi stating the only point of americans is to serve the jews, and thats exactly what they have always done. perfect as servants actually, religiously and otherwise, willing to enslave commit genocides etc. Perfect servants.

            Anyway, Jackson just slowed them down, look whats happened around the world since 1913.

            Jump to 2000.

            In the year of 2000 there were seven countries without a Rothschild owned or controlled Central Bank:

            North Korea

            The only countries left in 2003 without a Central Bank owned or controlled by the Rothschild Family were:

            North Korea

            The only countries left in 2011 without a Central Bank owned or controlled by the Rothschild Family are:

            North Korea

            The background story of this is at the event chronicle if your interested.

            It is the Zionists, their goal is the whole world and all of us including the jews are victims.

            Makes me wonder if the sumerian records are correct that dna was injected and they are “chosen people”

            Anyway, in some places this is illegal to say, but the nazis understood the difference between zionists and jews, is was the zionists he wanted to be rid of.

            This is why there were so many jews serving with the nazis.

            Very unpopular to say, o well, its true.

            1933 saw the establishment of the transfer agreement, but who was leading the jews? the zionists and they needed 6 million to vanish to create Israel.

            I posted the research the other day.

            Anyway, thats just proof the answer is “ITS THE BANKS” and until people figure it out, everything we hear is a lie, the hope we have now is the tin foil hats on the internet.

            Just imagine where these Zionists are intending to take us, consider AI and dna.

            Humanity itself is on the line.

            They are winning, there will be one world order,one race,one religion .

            People are choosing to become “the borg”.

            All the pieces to this “tin foil, conspiracy, only whackos look at it” story is there if you look, but as Ive said many times, “even when their god tells them about money changers they dont listen”.
            Why will they listen now?

            Im trying to make it absolutley obvious, its the Zionist, NOT the Jews.

            Think about it, Rothchild told everyone he doesnt care which form of government,
            he wants the banks,

            the Zionists funded Wellington AND Napoleon, they funded the Allies AND the Axis.

            One of Hitlers drivers was a Jew for petes sake, Jews served with the nazis, but we are not told that.
            You dont have to be Jew to be Zionist.
            This distinction is important.

            The banks,Israel are both tools used by the Zionists.

            If you researched what the nazis did, you would find they really took a bite outa Zionism. Thats how they went from the poorest indebted nation on earth to the most powerful in about 5 yrs.
            This they got rich by stealing from jews is bs, they had no where near the wealth required even if they did do that.
            Of course they eventually did that as they did to france and everywhere else they went, but thats a war story.

            The answer for the U.S. and everyone else is quite simple, we already know it, END THE FED, stop the Zionists.

          It doesn’t matter. They network and have some of the strongest racial solidarity in the world. They will when push comes to shove side with their ethnic group and its nationality Israel- Judea. When it comes to religion Jews follow the Talmud and only pay lip service to the Torah. If they really followed the Torah they would have had to recognize Jesus as the messiah and son of God, repent and become Christians. Instead they for the most part rejected Christ and became full blown occultists, criminals, perverts and revolutionaries. This is what Judaism is all about. It is about what is good for the Jews only. When you understand this the theory that Jews are victims doesn’t hold water. What they really are is master victimizers and like Jesus said they are of their father the devil. ISIS= Israeli Secret Intelligence Service. Its motto: By way of deception we do war.

        Finally we do know it was ISIS back in 2013 and it was initially, too, blamed on Assad.

        I don’t have a dog in the fight but Assad was elected by a majority of his people. The US Turkey, Israel, the UK and France are sponsors of the terrorists. How many more refugees do we need to create?

            Actually the collateral damage was the chemicals that went off when Assad’s Air Force bombed a perfectly legal and valid military target, the munitions dump of the terrorists. It wasn’t Assad responsible to the WMD, it was ISIS and the rest of the terrorists. I’m shocked by the leap to judgement by so many in the face of no evidence at all given by the same bastards who lied us into Iraq and Libya.

    Strategically, we should not have any troops in Syria.

            The problem is that Assad had little to gain from the use of chemical weapons, since he was already winning against the rebels.
            The UN people stated that it could be either Chlorine gas or Sarin, but tests would take a while to identify the agent.
            From my observation of the photos and descriptions as choking, I would place the probability of agent as chlorine or Phosgene, not the nerve agent Sarin.
            The Russians and UN said all Sarin had been removed in 2013.
            Syria had been under import watches and embargo since then, with no imports of sodium floride or potassium fluoride (requisites for Sarin manufacture) reported.
            The rebels had used chemicals before.
            The Russians claimed a normal bombing attack by Assad, hitting a hidden rebel munitions store, caused the problem.

            All these facts do raise doubt in my mind as to the claim that Assad either had or used Sarin last week.

      Only someone still owned and operated by the CMIC could come up with something as absurd as Assad needing to test Trump. Go listen to anything Assad has ever said about anything and then listen to anything Trump has ever said.

      Assad is a logical thinking rational person who expresses himself in an understandable way. You don’t have to agree with him but he is not some loose cannon running his mouth. I’m impressed with the few times I have heard him speak. He’s a doctor, has a nice wife and children.

      Trump on the other hand is a loud mouth idiot who just wrote his epitaph and should the cards fall the wrong way, he just convinced Russia, China, Iran and N Korea that he is a rabid dog working for his masters in Israel.

      This is the guy who claimed he was going to put HRC in jail and make nice with the Russians. Try thinking about a single thing the Russians have done in the last three months to justify the demonization they are undergoing.

      There is an excellent chance WW III just started and the US is going to lose.For crying out loud, 70% of Navy jets are down for parts and 100 flight instructors just went on strike because their oxygen systems don’t work and the Admiral in charge simply doesn’t care.

His going off-script in forcefully telling the American people that they’re getting screwed. Overtures, or at least lip service, to improve relations with Russia.

          But his appointments and the history of people he has associated with, particularly his chumminess with the Zionists, speak volumes.

          All that aside, I’m absolutely disgusted by the behavior of the so-called ‘left’, who have shown themselves to have no more scruples than they have a clue. They give a rat’s ass about respecting legitimate election results, just like they give a rat’s ass about the lives of all the middle easterners that they are so desperate to have immigrate here.

            Jimmy Carter Offered Fawning Praise of Argentine Dirty War

            Newly-declassified docs show that Jimmy Carter’s support for Argentine junta’s “counter-terrorism” belies his popular image as a humanitarian.
            Although former U.S. President Jimmy Carter is widely applauded for his human rights agenda in foreign policy, newly-declassified documents related to the U.S. role in Argentina’s Dirty War indicates that the Democrat was fully aware of the junta’s brutal crackdown on Leftist dissidents but turned a blind eye–even offering fawning praise at times–and qualified the regime’s torture and murder as necessary to combat “terrorism.”

Some of the regimes he backed carried out mass slaughter that amounted to genocide.”

Many lesser officials also came from this group. It is rare for such an easily identified private group to play such a prominent role in an American Administration.

    Obviously you never spent any time in combat. In 1969 the bright sparks at Wing determined that we needed to test tear gas on the NVA we knew were lurking west of the Combat Base at Dong Ha. Naturally being the military, things were delayed and delayed and delayed. Finally the fixed wing loaded with gas showed up and the FAC controlling the strike put them right on target just west of the combat base.

    Alas, all of the planning called for the gas to be dropped early in the day when the wind was blowing from the east. The delays were in unison with the daily 180 degree change in wind direction and by the time the gas was deployed, they gassed the entire 3rd Marine Division.

    Everybody in the military knows that using gas is always a problem of one sort or another and doesn’t work very well. Civilians worry about gas attacks, the military doesn’t. In war you get killed by artillery, not chemicals.

    Only an idiot would conclude Assad was behind the attack. Please don’t tell me you are getting your information from the FSM.

    The US involvement in Iraq killed over a million civilians, don’t whine to me about 80 dead Syrians killed on behalf of Israel. We have destroyed the country and they did nothing to us.

        Rather than pursuing a “comprehensive peace” with the entire Arab world, Israel should work jointly with Jordan and Turkey to “contain, destabilize, and roll-back” those entities that are threats to all three.

        That is exactly what has happened and simple logic would tell you that Syria hasn’t done anything to us. You may believe that the US has some right to attack any country in the world any time it wants but the people of Iraq, Iran, Libya, Syria, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Lebanon and Yemen would probably argue that you are wrong.

      This is not about 80 Syrian dead, it is about putting the hammer down on chemical weapons use, regardless of who used them, period.

      The Syrian civil war is not our war, it is a Syrian war – but ISIS is civilization’s war. ISIS is in Syria, therefore those who prefer peace over war are entangled by the ramifications of the Syrian war, unfortunately, as is all of western society. Ignoring it, wishing it away, is useless and detrimental to our future.

      Your statement the U.S. military doesn’t care about Chem weapons is simply false. Chem weapons have killed 10s of thousands in the Middle East since the 1980s Iran-Iraq war. Those weapons are the biggest wild-card and indiscriminate threat to U.S. and global stability besides BIO and NUCs. And yes, U.S. civilians fear them, those same civilians we are sworn to protect.

      Obviously, you know nothing of my background – making your comment petty, and false. I have served in multiple combat theaters – the Middle East, Central Asia, Caucasus, Southern Philippines, Balkans and worked in Counter Terror and Counter WMD for much of my career. My last assignment, 2012-2013, was as POL-MIL adviser to U.S. Army Central for LTG Brooks, forward deployed to the Middle East, with a large focus on the Syrian civil war, My experience is recent and relevant.

        You are a card carrying member of the CMIC and you vote your paycheck. Saying that the US should attack Syria because ISIS had chemical weapons is beyond absurd and wanders into insanity. By the way, the US and Israel were responsible for the creation of ISIS if you care.

        And while the rest of the board doesn’t understand the specific meaning of “served in multiple combat theaters” I understand exactly what you meant. You have never been in combat. That’s really easy to figure out.

        Israel has been advocating the destruction of the rest of the middle east for almost 40 years. Being anti-Zionist is not being anti-Semitic.

        The US has been responsible for the deaths of millions in the Middle East over the past 30 years. The number killed by chemical weapons pale by comparison.

        While it is true SH killed Kurds with chemical weapons, Donald Rumsfeld knew he could prove it. He still had the receipts.

            What you have yet to come to grips with is that a lot of seemingly nice and loyal Americans are committing some horrible crimes all in the name of protecting America. The US is responsible for the murder of millions in the Middle East. Everything we touched we destroyed and anyone working for the CMIC thinks it’s just great. Eisenhower was the greatest general in US history and he warned us of the danger.

            We are fighting wars that we need not fight all for the purpose of feeding the CMIC. We killed 10,000 American servicemen and mercenaries in Iraq, had another 50,000 with serious injuries, bankrupted our economy and we are still there in the country. At what point does the US admit we are the problem, not the solution?

        Mr. McKinney,

        I agree with you that chemical weapons are an abomination. What do you think of the US use of depleted uranium? To those who argue that it is harmless, I suggest they dust the house they and their families live in with it to prove their conviction.

        How about the US provision of chemical weapons to Saddam Hussein to use on the Kurds and Iranians? I’m still waiting for calls for conviction of the US war criminals involved in that. But though it was known at the time, we have the photo of a grinning Rumsfeld shaking Saddam’s hand after the fact.

        ISIS? How do you explain that Russia achieved more against ISIS in their first six weeks of involvement in Syria than the US did in the previous 18 months? Why did the US not do anything about ISIS’s convoys of tank trucks full of oil to Turkey, helping them finance their operations? What about the evidence that Obama and Hillary knew that Saudi Arabia and Qatar were (are?) funding ISIS, and did nothing about it?

        No one is allowed to criticize any action of Israel without suffering the accusation of being ‘anti-semitic’. Due to over use it’s a worn out red herring.

      We know that the “rebels” had and have used chemical weapons. It easily could be the result of a bombing attack on a weapons storage area. That make sense but for Assad to waste the use of chemical weapons and all the issues that that would cause (such as the US launching an immediate attack without any investigation) simply doesn’t make sense.

      Assad’s story makes sense, Trump’s story doesn’t. If you take your intelligence from the Fake Stream Media that we know lie about anything and switch your brain off, you might think Trump’s attack on one more sovereign nation with the most flimsy of legal justification is just wonderful.

          In the same tone, the US believed “beyond a shadow of a doubt that Iraq possessed WMD.” As if government agents don’t lie on a regular basis. The US has an agenda in Syria, they are not candid with the public about what that agenda is and they lie about everything.

          Those video clips of Russian aircraft attacking ISIS oil conveys taking oil to Turkey were up to five miles long, nose to tail trucks, just one big line. How come the Russians could find them and the US couldn’t. According to US propaganda, we were attacking ISIS forces for a couple of years before the Russians came in but the Russians accomplished 500% more in six months than the US did total.

          What happened last week in Syria just became a lot more clear to me when I read a report from the Russians saying that all the Syrian bombing raids were passed on in advance to the US. The US knew the Syrians were going to bomb that town so they tell their “rebel” buddies, they load the ammo dump up with chemicals, let the Syrians bomb the crap out of a perfect legal and appropriate target and what a surprise, chemicals are let loose.

          The US and Trump wanted an excuse to attack Assad and they created their own chemical attack. But as candidate Trump made clear some 45 times, attacking Assad would be a very stupid thing to do and would threaten WW III. He was right all along.

    Warplanes strike Syrian town hit by chemical attack
    BASSEM MROUE,Associated Press 7 hours ago:
    BEIRUT (AP) — Warplanes on Saturday struck the Syrian town where a chemical attack had killed scores of people earlier this week, as Turkey warned that a retaliatory U.S. missile strike on a Syrian air base would only be “cosmetic” if greater efforts are not made to remove President Bashar Assad from power.

    The airstrikes on the opposition-held northern town of Khan Sheikhoun, where 87 people were killed in the chemical attack earlier this week, killed a woman and wounded her son, according to the Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human Rights and the Local Coordination Committees, an activist collective.

    Elsewhere in Syria, U.S.-led airstrikes killed at least 21 people, including a woman and her six children who were fleeing on a boat across the Euphrates River near the Islamic State group’s self-styled capital, Raqqa, the target of a major offensive by U.S.-backed and Kurdish-led Syrian forces, activists said.

    An airstrike on a rebel-held town in the northern Idlib province killed at least 18 people, including women and children, according to the Observatory and Ariha Today, an activist group. It was not immediately clear who carried out the strike.

    Near the central city of Homs, a bomb exploded aboard a bus carrying workers, killing a woman and wounding more than 20, according to state TV and the Observatory.

    Congress Goes On Break, Trump Awaits Big Progress On Agenda
    By ANDREW TAYLOR – Associated Press – Sat Apr 8, 12:10PM CDT

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump is approaching the end of his first 100 days in office without having signed a single major bill into law.

    Trump’s drive to repeal and replace the Obama-era health law ran aground in the House in spite of Republican opposition to the overhaul. It was the first time in recent memory that a newly elected president’s initial big proposal had imploded so spectacularly.

    The confirmation of Judge Neil Gorsuch to the Supreme Court stands as the only major victory for Republicans so far.

    Congress left Friday for a two-week spring break. Looking ahead, prospects for health care are at best dicey, while other initiatives such as a tax overhaul, infrastructure spending and carrying out Trump’s unpopular proposal for spending cuts aren’t ready for prime time yet.

    “In the first 70 or so days I haven’t seen much” in the way of Capitol Hill success for Trump, said Rep. William Lacy Clay, D-Mo. “They’ve had a big, colossal failure with their so-called health care repeal. So I don’t think it’s been much of a success.”

    From the view of Republicans, Rep. Charlie Dent, R-Pa., said: “If we want to have durable, sustainable reforms in this country, whether tax reform, health care or anything else, it will need to be done on a bipartisan basis. Everybody knows that.”

    The president’s victories have been limited chiefly to rolling back about a dozen regulations issued by President Barack Obama, which Republicans say will relieve businesses from the burdens of compliance costs. The measures, which can’t be blocked by Democrats, have repealed regulations on coal mining near creeks and streams, and limiting methane emissions from oil wells on federal lands.

    This could have been a “false flag” attack, however, Peter Ford, the former UK ambassador to Syria believes the Russian’s explanation of what happened—a munitions and chemical weapon depot of Al Qaeda was struck. He explains that Assad is not “mad” and that he would not have provoked the U.S. Anyone with half a brain would realize he would not have done this right after the U.S. had said that his removal was not a prerequisite for peace. The narrative by the MSM that he was emboldened by the U.S. allowing him to stay is downright laughable. Trump blew it. However, if the man has any conscience and intelligence, he might have done it for a couple of reasons even knowing Assad was not at fault: 1. To send a message to North Korea and others (the Russians won’t be intimidated) 2. It now takes away the argument that he was in collusion with the Russians (which was always a myth) and will allow him to reset our relationship with the Russians going forward not only in forging peace in Syria but a general reset. If the man falls into the neocon camp then the American people have once again been deceived and the U.S. government will continue to be the bully of the world that we’ve come to expect and maybe we are that “great satan” that we’re accused of being. Regardless, America will not be “great again” if Trump continues to be controlled by the very establishment he raled against in his campaign. May God forgive this waning hegemonic nation.

    I appreciate your prior post. It certainly is a false flag, but it’s more of a reverse false flag. I think history will prove that lobbing a few telephone poles at small airfield will move things in the right direction. Trump has negotiated a new peace deal for the Middle East, and no one seems to realize it. Syria has to get cleaned up for the peace deal to work. Many countries have a vested interest regarding that port and the pipelines. I’m sure we will see major progress soon.

    ALERT: JFK Murder Conspiracy SOLVED, but who cares

    While the world wonders about President Trump, 54 years ago, a US President was murdered in broad daylight in Dallas, Texas; John Fitzgerald Kennedy – the only Irish Catholic President, and possibly one of the only US Presidents that was not a Freemason. To this day, the facts surrounding this event remain clouded. The ‘official’ Warren Commission report presents fanciful theories about a “Magic Bullet” that was able to go in and out of JFK’s body multiple times, and other wild fantasies. But this official report is ‘official’ and any other explanation of the events of that day are ‘conspiracy theories.’ As time has passed, and secondary information surfaces, there are indications of the true power of the information that was kept secret for so long.

    The murder of JFK is perhaps one of the most significant events of the 20th century. In the past 10 years, new information has surfaced that portends to a major re-investigation into the issue. As well, a generation has passed since the event which took place 1963. This article presents two unique viewpoints, previously unpublished, as well as looking at some recently released evidence:

    Agree with your smokiing gun – mostly speculation findings. The article seems to have been designed to help assure release of the remaining documents.

    In 1992, the President John F. Kennedy Assassination Records Collection Act mandated that in 2017 all remaining JFK records and redactions be released. However, the National Archives has recently informed federal agencies that if they intend on maintaining secrecy over these records they should begin preparing appeals to the next president of the United States. We are working to ensure that the law is upheld. We are calling on you, fellow Americans, to come together and ensure that our government upholds the law.

    Russia, Iran Warn U.S. They Will “Respond With Force” If Syria “Red Lines” Crossed Again

    A statement issued on Sunday by a joint command centre consisting of forces of Russian, Iran and allied militia alliance supporting Syrian President Bashar al Assad said that Friday’s US strike on the Syrian air base crossed “red lines” and it would “respond with force” to any new aggression while increasing their level of support to their ally.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — President Donald Trump has scrapped the tax plan he campaigned on and is going back to the drawing board in a search for Republican consensus behind legislation to overhaul the U.S. tax system.

    The administration’s first attempt to write legislation is in its early stages and the White House has kept much of it under wraps. But it has already sprouted the consideration of a series of unorthodox proposals including a drastic cut to the payroll tax, aimed at appealing to Democrats.

    Some view the search for new options as a result of Trump’s refusal to set clear parameters for his plan and his exceedingly challenging endgame: reducing tax rates enough to spur faster growth without blowing up the budget deficit.

    Administration officials say it’s now unlikely that a tax overhaul will meet the August deadline set by Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin. But the ambitious pace to figure out a plan reflects Trump’s haste to move quickly past a bruising failure to broker a compromise within his own party on how to replace the health insurance law enacted under President Barack Obama.

    How can Jared Kushner be a “senior advisor” in this administration when he’s 36 years old and has very limited working knowledge of governance and foreign policy? BTW, his father Charles is a convicted felon. After his release fom prison, Charles Kushner shifted his business from New Jersey to New York City. In early 2007, Kushner Companies bought the 666 Fifth Avenue building in Manhattan for $1.8 billion. He and his family are estimated to have a net worth of $1.8 billion.

      Colonel James E. Sabow is mentioned at the 9:40 mark in David Steele’s RAW TALK

      Who Killed Colonel James E. Sabow, USMC?

      (IRVINE, Calif.) – On January 22, 1991, Marine Colonel James E. Sabow, age 51, was found dead by his wife in the backyard of his quarters at MCAS El Toro, California. The Orange County Coroner ruled the death a suicide.

      An investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigation Service (NCIS) reported suicide as the cause of death. However, on a review of the autopsy reports and other evidence, his family and other medical professionals and forensic experts strongly disagree.

      Dr. David Sabow, a neurologist from Rapid City, South Dakota, continues the effort to clear his brother’s name, devoting much of the past 19 years and his personal financial resources to this cause.

      Dr. Sabow provides support and convincing arguments that Colonel Sabow was clubbed to death in his backyard and then shot in the head with his own shotgun to suggest suicide. The motive for the murder was to stop Colonel Sabow from exposing criminal weapons and drug smuggling from and to military bases[1].

      After hearing this story from another Marine veteran, I have to admit at first that I was skeptical and unconvinced of a government cover-up of the murder of a decorated Marine Corps officer. My view of government conspiracies involving the deaths of President Kennedy and Martin Luther King, MKULTRA and even 911 is that they’re mostly grist for cheap paperback novels.

      However, after reading the accounts of Colonel Sabow’s tragic death, now I’m not so sure.

    Hi all!

    I haven’t had a chance to listen to the weekend politics show (yet) but I have certainly been somewhat amused by reading the comments of listeners here (an animated crew I must say!).

    As far as taking things at face value (Trump / Syria / Israel / Russia) I am also somewhat amused at seeing so many jump to conclusions.

    I don’t know about Trump, but I believe that the machinations happening around us are like three dimensional chess games (at least by the Russians and the Chinese … I’m not sure that Americans are that smart, but I kinda think that they are).

    Everyone (me included) gets so incensed by what we hear in the news (is it fake or is it real?) and now have alternative media to egg us on in the opposite directions.

    Sometimes, it helps to have some quiet contemplation about the macro scene unfolding and how events are shaping the directions in favor (or expense) of actors in the game.

    Rather than paying heed to the voices that seek to stoke emotion and reaction, I am looking to hear those who can help me make sense of what is happenening.

    I recall hearing an interview of James Bradley, an author whose father was said to have been one of the marines in the Iwo Jima photograph, and who went on to discover an unsettling historical diplomatic mission involving Teddie Roosevelt to Japan, chronicled in a book “The Imperial Cruise” which (I heard) describes a racist America’s view of the orient which may likely have laid the foundation to war in the Pacific some years later.

    He (Bradley) was lead to these conclusions by his studies of actual archives of documents that he took the time to read in Ivy League University libraries (i.e, source documents, not speculation).

    Since I have yet had the opportunity to visit libraries like Yale, Harvard, Princeton and the like, and it intrigues me to hear what they contain (that I don’t know about). It also gives me pause to jump to conclusions about what I hear happening around me.

    If you’ve never heard about him, please check out his Wikipedia page:

    Russia Demands Evidence to Support US Attack on Syria

    Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov telephoned Rex Tillerson concerning the attack on Syria. The minister had told Tillerson that allegations that the Syrian military had used chemical weapons in the so-called “poison gas incident” lacked any proof whatsoever. Lavrov and Tillerson had agreed to personally continue the talks on Syria, because it is increasingly looking like the “intelligence” community was deliberately trying to mislead the White House.

    Tillerson had to come out on CBS television stating that the priority of the US in Syria is to defeat the jihadist militia Islamic state (IS). Trump looks very stupid for allowing the intelligence community to create false flags. This is far more of a crisis than meets the eye. It is not likely that Syria will escalate from here, but there is a clash going on between the bureaucracy and the Trump White House. Can the intelligence community be trusted any more?
