UN: Syria End Game

Trump wants to bring home all remaining troops in Syria.  Mattis disagrees and submits his resignation.  Democrats want to impeach Trump for pulling troops.  And the UN – they want to hold a Council Commission meeting in 2019 to force Syria to be ruled by – the UN.   It ain’t over until the fat lady sings!

Why would the UN be involved at all?

Apparently, the entire peace process has come to a standstill because the UN demands a Constitutional Committee made up of 150 members chosen and affirmed by Russia, Iran, Turkey and the UN.   Syria has no say.   These 150 constitutional reform members will redraft Syria’s constitution and hold a new and improved Presidential election 18 months hence.   The UN special appointee to the Security Council for Syria, Staffan de Mistura, takes full self lauding credit for everything positive, and denies responsibility for anything negative, 350,000 deaths, and has spent four years working to find a ‘resolution’.  Now his four year term is up and as of December 31sthe will be replaced.

It would appear that a significant hurdle is the UN’s arrogance in finding that, “The United Nations alone, he stressed, has the legitimacy and mandate to “bless” a Constitutional Committee”.   In the meantime, Assad wants to build and has taken contracts from a number of countries and businesses who see the future potential – as in, $$$$.

“Following yesterday’s briefing, members of the Security Council paid tribute to the Special Envoy’s work, pledged support for his successor and reaffirmed their support for a Syrian-led political process shepherded by the United Nations.”    In other words, the UN is determined to have their hand, arm, and shoulder heavily weighted in anything Syria, most likely because the UN has numerous NGO favorites with whom their contracts for reconstruction would benefit.

The US special representative for Syria, Jim Jeffreys, was not even at the meeting having canceled his appearance.   The reason for his cancellation could be aligned with Mattis resignation, or simply the innate futility of the situation, run by a nearly defunct United Nations, which is intent on the creation of committees to regulate committees which regulate – committees.    A parallel to the Swamp that Trump is widely attempting to dissolve.

Part and parcel of the meeting included an argument regarding the purported ‘White Helmets’ who were portrayed by the media/UN as a humanitarian group aimed at helping the children and women amidst the war zone.   According to Syria and Russia, they were terrorists disguised to disrupt and create further chaos in a disingenuous ploy to skew perception and were actually in the forefront of gas attacks, deaths, and casualties.

Lest we forget, initially, Obama supported Al Nusra, among others, before determining they were a segment of ISIS.  It is partially because of these riffs, that the Constitutional Council is at a standstill unable to trust a UN or US or EU proposal.

Most Americans, as in The People, not the government,  just want other countries to rule themselves and let the chips fall where they may.  The obstructionist approach has had huge grievance effects, and The People are weary.

The conflict in Syria was initiated by US President, Obama to oust Assad.  But it didn’t go exactly as planned, and unlike the Ukrainian Revolution that saw an immediate flight of Yanukovich, Assad stood by his country to the end.  Personally, I have no opinion on Assad, although the media has certainly been brutal in their portrayal, but given they have been equally bludgeoning toward Trump, Melania, and anyone aligned with them, I can no longer have any committed opinion about – anything via media presentation.

That being said, Assad may very well be Syria’s Trump.  And the Truth lives in Alice’s Wonderland.

In that venue, we have just been made aware of the fact that the CNN Journalist of the Year, Claas Relotius whose articles were picked up by  CiceroFrankfurter Allgemeine SonntagszeitungNZZ am SonntagFinancial Times DeutschlandtazDie WeltSZ-MagazinDie WeltwocheZeit Online and Reportagen, completely and wholly fabricated his stories in which demonizing the US was a theme.

He is One – of perhaps hundreds.   And so, in that vein, we can not rely on media interpretation, sensationalism, opinion, or in-depth journalism.   We can not rely on anything that occurred during the entire Obama administration.  We can not rely on our intelligence agencies.

What we do know?

The UK, Germany, France, The Netherlands, and Sweden governments are not our allies, and haven’t been for at least decades.   They may be allies of a power elite shadow – but they are completely and utterly anti-The People.

That being said, it is important to re-analyze the events of the past to dissect what the true agenda was that is our current present, in order to determine who and what is the truth in moving forward to the future.

Because, it is a fair bet, it is nothing like what what we were fed.

The Job of a Politician

I hate to break it to you POLITICIANS… but the problem with politics is YOU.  It has nothing to do with We The People and everything to do with YOU – your corrupt, fraudulent, arrogant, self righteous thinking, believing and mud-slinging.   You instigate, and then try to deflect.  You have the worst rating in history and still try to deflect and move to the safety zone like a whimpy college liberal.

SHAME on you – get a backbone.  You are not here to whine, you are supposed to lead this country!  That is your JOB.

If you actually took a moment to be humble and witness to your failures, we might listen.

WE THE PEOPLE

A President used to represent a Leader whose nationalism and pride drove him to want more than anything to see this country rise up within the context of greatness. Not that we have to be supreme, but that we are built on a core of beliefs and morality that represents strength and commitment and honor. Throughout history we have had some Presidents who strove for this – and some who seemed more determined to succeed at an ‘agenda’.

Franklin D Roosevelt came into office facing The Great Depression and WWII. He didn’t blame the previous administration, he didn’t cry foul, he didn’t need a teleprompter or an ear mike to tell him what to say, he saw People and the best way to mobilize was to ask everyone to help him in this cause.

Facing the crisis, he implemented relief and recovery initiatives, pushed legislation to help resuscitate a dead economy, a dead manufacturing sector, and a dead industry. He created the New Deal, held fireside chats and gave hope! “There is nothing to fear, but fear itself” – was the motto that gave him respect, for everyone knew that his own test in fear came when he lost the use of his legs from polio. And he CHOSE to rise above it and not succumb to fear!

He was a man who represented WE The People, Our Country, and ideologies of working together in a mobilized community effort.

Our GOP candidates don’t have that heart. Their agenda is weak, it is filled with rhetoric that no one believes because it comes from the same rhetoric we’ve been hearing for decades!  No one has faith in their words as they remain – blanks. Pistol whipping, empty, blanks.  And yet, they continue to ram the same junk down our throats knowing we are done!  Which makes them just look idiotic.  Are you listening or is your ‘agenda’ your issue because We The People are not falling?

The only reason Trump has garnered support is because the people hear his somewhat muted cry for Our Country and The People behind the dearth of crass verbiage and a sharp tongue.

Ronald Reagan was another amazing man, not just a politician speaking half truths and waiting for a poll to determine his stance on a topic. He had an incredible core value ideology that was always steady, real, and accountable. He symbolized strength and The People naturally followed, eager for a true Leader as opposed to a true narcissist.  Where are the men?  Because I keep seeing school boys pushing and shoving on an elementary school playground…

Amazingly articulate, Reagan gave a speech on behalf of Barry Goldwater in 1964 that is worthy of memorization. “A Time For Choosing” was about the shift in our country wherein Socialism had silently begun to take over.  So subtle, most Americans had not even noticed. The same Socialism we had sought to defeat in Russia and Nazi Germany, had dug its tentacles into American lives and livelihoods.

Today, most people don’t even understand what Socialism means, what it decries, what it absorbs, and what it kills – Freedom.

Reagan saw the path that we were following and succinctly sought to warn us of the impending disaster. Goldwater lost the election to Lyndon Johnson who had been Kennedy’s choice for Vice President. A vote for Johnson symbolized a vote for the now deceased Kennedy.

What would it take for a GOP candidate to win today? A stance that is built on a core of integrity, honor, and strength, a stance that believes in this country and has a means for recreating our nationalism. A stance that brings The People together, rather than divides. A stance that has a clear understanding of who and what our enemy is, and will vow to eliminate that threat – period.

Unfortunately, what we see on the debate stage is pandering, mud slinging, and bullying and we are left shaking our heads and grumbling.

What is a Leader? He is someone who is not ruled by fear. He is someone confident and clear headed. He is someone whose integrity is unquestionable. He is someone who believes in our country through The People, and seeks to create a community rather than sectarian division.  He Leads without confusing  dictating with leading.  He is someone we Trust implicitly.

What if instead of telling us about Obama’s failures, the GOP candidate gave us ways we could regain our strength? What if instead of bemoaning Obama and Hillary, we didn’t give them the time of day  as they aren’t worthy of our mention? What if instead of fearing Trump, they saw how to capitalize on his platform of ‘Truth’ and make it better, more honest, more respectful, more strong!

What is the answer right now? Regaining pride in our government, pride in our President, and pride in our country.  Who should be our mentors?  Certainly not the elite, certainly not Hollywood, certainly not the corrupted CEO’s who lavish indiscriminately on themselves.  Take a lesson from Goldwater.  Take a lesson from Reagan.  Take a lesson from FDR!

Merkel may have made a few mistakes, but she made them holding to her integrity.  Putin may have made some mistakes, but he did it from his unswerving Nationalism.  What if, we actually had a Leader that made us feel safe and worthy and strong?  

Trump? Putin? Fans of Truth…

So Putin and Trump are trading compliments and MSNBC is in a tizzy!

How dare Trump say anything complimentary about a President who has been “accused of killing journalists and political rivals, on top of invading neighboring countries.”

WOW – how heinous, our president would never, ever do such an awful thing… Oh wait… well he was a cocaine user and dealer, he has invaded Ukraine and ousted the then elected president, Yanokovich, which resulted in their economy plummeting into oblivion, their land raized by bombs, and their people dead and wounded, and he has offered asylum to peoples who were apparent terrorists resulting in multiple civilian deaths here in the US. Oops.

Let’s not forget the key term used even by MSNBC – alleged and accused – as opposed to verifiable as in our own President. Obviously this MSNBC character hasn’t read the Bible or he’d know that Matthew 7:5 states; “You hypocrite, first take the plank out of your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother’s eye.”

Putin shared enthusiasm for the Trump stating he sees Trump as ‘bright and talented’ and thinks they would get along fine.

Why?

First, why do people like Trump when all the statistics support his less than stellar attitude and style? I have asked many this question and the resounding answer is always the same – they don’t trust anyone else. No one. Just because a politician can orate circles around another, doesn’t necessarily equate to ‘honesty or integrity or ethics’. We simply need to look at the smiles and rhetoric of Obama’s first campaign to realize this inalienable truth. And while he promised ‘change’, I doubt this is the change most Americans thought their vote would buy.

We end the year 2015 on a somber note of debt – $18.1 trillion to be exact – $8 trillion of which was added under the Obama regime. Sixty seven percent of our debt was added under President Obama. It wouldn’t be so awful if we had something to show for it like – an incredibly well stocked transparent military – authentically budgeted and secure, or an economy that was raging ahead ready to put the screws to that deficit, or an ‘affordable’ Affordable Care Act, or even a charitable powerhouse known throughout the world for our good deeds…. But we don’t have that, we just have – debt.

What Putin did give his country was a nationalism that we envy. He gave them his word and it means ‘his Word’. He gave them his unconditional support, his unconditional authority, a leadership that is powerful and meaningful and when people feel jealous – they attack. Obama doesn’t have Putin’s charisma or tactical intellect. Kerry doesn’t have Lavrov’s incredible leadership and insight and calm.

And while I was reading about the women in Libya, when I looked at their faces, when I read their words, I learned something very powerful – they support their country and have no desire whatsoever of leaving. There are immigrants, refugees, asylum seekers, but if you were to ask, the majority would want their own country – not ours, not yours, but theirs. And when we meddle, and pin prick, and uproot, the result has not EVER proven positive.  So this meddling clause of the US in uprooting governments, coups and such so as to institute a ‘new and improved government’, has worldly, widely – backfired to the nth degree.

It IS NOT working.

The Ukrainians, the people, want ‘their’ country, they don’t want ours. The Syrians want their country. The Yemenis. The Lebanese. The Iranians. And this would seem to be the lesson that MSNBC and it’s followers miss, the media in every other country around the world views ours as pathetic. They view us as idiots for believing the drivel. They view Obama as a puppet and his policies as idiotic and perilous. What countries? It is beyond that and now is ‘continents’, as in: Europe – Asia – South America – the people, not the media as in WE the PEOPLE.

We are so indoctrinated into believing the media and the politicians that we no longer understand – the people.

So when Trump takes the lead and all the intellects are confounded – understand that we have crossed the line, the boundaries, the ethic, the morality – and people are afraid. They are afraid at the ugly, ugly spiral that Obama has created for our Great Country, and the evolution of that chaos is growing uglier with every day.

Guns? That’s protection from the policies of our government. Anger – that’s reaction to the heinous lies of our government.

So next time MSNBC wants to attack Putin – wants to attack Trump – they had better take heed, because Matthew 7:5 is alive!

And we are NOT backing down.

US Weapons? Going, going GONE -Sold to the Middle East

The US had a record year for sales of weapons to foreign governments – so far totaling over $47 billion and going strong through the remainder of the year. The sales are 30% over last year and double that of 2013! Great – right?

But our own military just released a sobering report stating that we are running out of weapons and our military defense is spiraling… How will we fight ISIS if we don’t have any weapons left?

From gifting F-16 fighter jets to Egypt, to Apache helicopters and warships, to patriot missiles and Gatling guns, arms deals with Qatar, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait, have contributed to a burgeoning arms industry still going strong. The Saudis have used these weapons to parade before Iran and to reduce Yemen to rubble. The US and media claim that Iran poses a significant threat to Saudi Arabia is well – rubbish.

But giving Iran nuclear power while arming Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Kuwait – is not rubbish. It is instigating an all out massive Middle East implosion.

And while the $47 billion price tag sounds like mega $$$$$ profits, our friendly US government subsidizes those sales from our coffers that are apparently empty of dollars to provide weapons for our own military! Of the $47 billion, we taxpayers footed about $11 billion or roughly 25% of the cost. Why? Because the Saudis don’t have enough money to pay the full tab and deserve a discount??

Just this month the Department of Defense authorized the sale of $70 million arms to Turkey. Why? Because Turkey blackmailed Germany, the EU and the US over the refugee crisis. And Turkey won $3 billion euro – to start – $70 subsidized arms, and EU membership status despite its deplorable human rights, its ongoing decimation of Kurds, and its downing of a Russian fighter jet using US made weapons. Add to that the recent reports of ISIS utilizing US made weapons and it would appear everyone has US weapons but – the US!

According to  General Welsh with the US Air Force, the US is “expending munitions faster than we can replenish them.” But how is that possible if we sell $47 billion with $11 billion US government subsidies? Obviously someone is making weapons because we keep selling them! Obviously someone is making money. Obviously the US military is on the short end of the stick in terms of priority. Even more odd is the fact that this General stated that replenishing stock could take up to four years…but we anticipate continuing sales to the Middle East to go on without a hitch!

I have a plan, let’s stop selling to the Middle East. Maybe then it would only take a few months or a year to ramp up our supplies. Or maybe we should just let the Middle East deal with the Middle East. There’s a novel idea.

The news of depletion comes at the point of depletion. Under normal circumstances wouldn’t the statement be made as we ‘approached’ depletion? Because now we may be phoning Russia with our buy order of their cache –  

How much is this little war costing the US?

Between August 2014 and June 2015, the US spent roughly $2.7 billion fighting in Syria, which amounts to $9 million per day. But that does not include what we have been spending on Iraq since 2003 – $187 million per day. That would amount to $71,540,000,000 per year. And what do we have to show for that?   Containment in Syria…nothing in Iraq, we’re still too busy helping Turkey kill the Kurds that we support.

So when we hear about the $500,000 gas station that should have cost $50,000, the $1 billion training program that trained no one in Syria, a Syrian ‘refugee’ plan that will cost the US $55 billion, $4.5 billion to help rebuild everything we destroyed in Syria, and lets not leave out – DYN Corp., a private military company that receives 96% of its funding from the feds amounting to over $3 billion, despite the fact that it has been indicted for fraud, corruption, tax evasion and sexual abuse of children (with no one being punished), I would venture to say that – spending needs a bullwhip!

Of course, all this spending comes as veterans get jacked by VA hospitals, their pay is cut, and their service is life. Who is running this show? Because it is most definitely not the people – as in We the People.
