Excerpt: It’s hard to keep track of President Donald Trump’s betrayals of his country. First he solicited Vladimir Putin’s help in the 2016 election. Then he teamed up with Kim Jong-un to lie about North Korea’s arsenal. Then he covered up intelligence about Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s role in the murder of a U.S. resident. Then he pressed Israel to deny entry to members of Congress. Then he asked Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Democrats.
In the midst of all this madness—most recently, the administration’s stonewalling of a congressional inquiry into Trump’s coercion of Ukraine—the president has ordered American forces to get out of the way of a Turkish invasion in Syria. The troop withdrawal looks like a distraction, but it isn’t. Trump is colluding with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, just as he has colluded with other authoritarians against the United States. The timeline of their relationship tells a story of disloyalty to America and its allies.
Excerpt: Turkey has launched a military operation against Kurdish fighters in northeastern Syria after US forces pulled back from the area, with a series of airstrikes hitting a town on Syria’s northern border.Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan announced the start of the campaign this morning, which followed an abrupt decision on Sunday by US President Donald Trump that American troops would step aside to allow for the operation.Trump’s move represented a shift in US policy that essentially abandoned the Syrian Kurdish fighters who have been America’s only allies on the ground in Syria. They were longtime US allies in the fight against the Islamic State group.
As the powers that be continue in the Swamp that is Washington D.C. I couldn’t help but think how they continue to make the politics of today a muddy slime filled pit of corruption!
Two years of the Mueller investigation that found President Trump not guilty of conspiracy but could not clear him on obstruction of justice! Link to wikipedia site
So after all the time and money spent attorney General Barr spins the report to protect Donald Trump. As they move forward with an Impeachment inquiry and it is becoming more clear he will probably soon be out of office at which time he could likely face indictment for the crimes committed and discovered under the Mueller Report, Attorney General Barr and his cohorts opened up MORE investigations into the INVESTIGATORS, is this in the hopes of finding something wrong with the first investigation done by Mueller in the HOPE TO KEEP DONALD TRUMP OUT OF JAIL?
It is going to be a lonely journey for me for a while. I am going to need your help. And the void to be filled by John’s passing is more than I can do. Don’t look to me to replace this man. Look to me to remember what he was all about and try to follow in his footsteps. If you want to help me, join the march. If you want to help the country, be more like John McCain. I believe there’s a little John McCain in all of us. And the little John McCain practiced by a lot of people can make this a really great nation.
Well Sen. Graham, you are NOT following in his (John McCain) footsteps, if anything you have completely forgotten what Mr. McCain was all about!
