They Die For Trump Towers Istanbul

The Big MAGAt had this to say in a 2015 interview with Steve Bannon, then chairman of Breitbart News.

“I have a little conflict of interest because I have a major, major building in Istanbul. It’s a tremendously successful job. It’s called Trump Towers — two towers, instead of one, not the usual one, it’s two.”

As the blood spills from more innocents in Syria, the Tangerine Tyrant deflects from his greedy conflict of interest and “rationalizes” with this garbage.

“The Kurds are fighting for their land, just so you understand, and somebody wrote a very, very powerful article today. They didn't help us in the Second World War, they didn't help us with Normandy as an example, they mentioned names of different battles. But they're there to help us with their land and that's a different thing. In addition to that we—we have spent tremendous amounts of money on helping the Kurds in terms of ammunition, in terms of weapons, in terms of money, in terms of pay, with all of that being said, we like the Kurds.”

He got that lie about Kurds from another Breitbart white nationalist. Kurds really did serve with the British in the Second World War. Nobody in the Trump family “helped us with Normandy”, of course. Nor did any of them serve the US in any war, or in any other way. 

Let's also remember Russian Communists took the most casualties in WWII, and by doing so helped spare the lives of countless thousands of Americans.

The Breitbart white nationalist tells us in his “very, very powerful article”
all Kurds should be punished because some are communists. They also helped in the war on ISIS.

“Moreover, all Kurds are not equal. The PKK – the Kurdistan Workers' Party – are a bunch of commie terrorists who have been fighting the Turks for a long time.”

Yes, they have, because they want independence. You know like the American Founders.

These con-servative white nationalists really love dictators so much they would have sided with Hitler. Hitler was a white nationalist racist who hated socialists and commies, opposed abortion, and made Germany great again, so he was their kind of guy all the way.

Now let’s hear from our troops on the ground. I want you to see what Jennifer Griffin the National Security Correspondent for Fox News tweeted:
I just spoke to a distraught US Special Forces soldier who is among the 1000 or so US troops in Syria tonight who is serving alongside the SDF Kurdish forces. It was one of the hardest phone calls I have ever taken. "I am ashamed for the first time in my career."

This veteran US Special forces soldier has trained indigenous forces on multiple continents. He is on the frontlines tonight and said they are witnessing Turkish atrocities. "Turkey is not doing what it agreed to. It's horrible," this military source on the ground told me.

“We met every single security agreement. The Kurds met every single agreement. There was NO threat to the Turks - NONE - from this side of the border." "This is insanity," the concerned US service member told me. ""I don't know what they call atrocities but they are happening."

This American soldier told me the Kurds have not left their positions guarding the ISIS prisoners. In fact "they prevented a prison break last night without us." "They are not abandoning our side (yet)." The Kurds are "pleading for our support." We are doing "nothing."

Troops on the ground in Syria and their commanders were "surprised" by the decision Sunday night. Of the President's decision: "He doesn't understand the problem. He doesn't understand the repercussions of this. Erdogan is an Islamist, not a level headed actor."

According to this US soldier on the ground tonight in Syria: "The Kurds are as close to Western thinking in the Middle East as anyone. "It's a shame. It's horrible." "This is not helping the ISIS fight." Re: ISIS prisoners: "Many of them will be free in the coming days and weeks." 

The Tangerine Tyrant seems to take delight in threatening to flood Europe with more ISIS nuts.

Whose side is our president really on?

And even Mitt Romney is growing a spine and sense of decency.

“Reports indicate Turkey is predictably attacking the Kurdish allies we abandoned. It’s a tragic loss of life among friends shamefully betrayed. We can only hope the President’s decision does not lead to even greater loss of life and a resurgence of ISIS.”

What’s next?

A recent Fox News Poll shows:

51% want Trump impeached & removed from office
4% want him impeached but not removed
40% oppose impeachment altogether

Do you think the Trump administration is more corrupt, less corrupt, or about as corrupt as previous administrations?

More corrupt: 51%
Less corrupt: 27%
About as corrupt: 18%

“Ruh, roh!”

Please note, apart from a cartoon dog, I’m only quoting FOX News, Republicans, and the military in this post. How about that?

Haven't you heard, DD? Fox News is fake news, now. Our President and his loyal beyond all rationale and reason base get their news from Breitbart, Newsmax, The Daily Caller, and now. They still tell them all what they want to hear rather than what they need to hear. We all know if it's not something that they want to hear than it's completely disregarded.

Like, really? The Kurds didn't help us at Normandy? What the... they helped us with ISIS. Honestly, I just wish, at this point, the President would just be honest. What more trouble could he be in if he just said 'Yeah, I've got business interests in Turkey and Turkey threatened my personal fortune, so, sorry Kurds. Go F yourselves, Daddy needs his gold toilets'

Et tu FOX(R)? Poor MAGAts will have to crawl back into the rotted woodwork.

The Big MAGAt has just given aid and comfort to real enemies. I think there's a term for that in the Constitution.

Wow, who would have thought we'd see the day when REV Dave wanted to keep our troops in harms way, never thought he was a chicken hawk.

"Wow, who would have thought we'd see the day when REV Dave wanted to keep our troops in harms way, never thought he was a chicken hawk."

Let's not pretend that the move to abandon the Kurds (again) is out of concern for our troops. We've been saber rattling at Iran since this President came into office and we're sending additional troops to Saudi Arabia. Oue troops and geopolitical interests aren't a consideration for this administration. The President has business interests in Turkey and it's obvious to anyone looking at the situation that Turkey is leveraging our President's personal greed. It's, honestly, another demonstration that 'America First' just means 'Trump First' to our President.

It's funny that one of the defenses given over Trump's move in Syria was that he was fulfilling a campaign promise. Of all the promises he gave (Mexico will pay for it, 4%, 5%, 6% GDP Growth, Divesting/Walling himself off from his businesses), he's opting for this one. Even though it's not even fulfilling the promise he cites.

Dave Dubya said...

Yes. Nor should we pretend Putin isn't having his puppet dancing in this bloody tragedy. Civilian deaths and suffering means nothing to those evil tyrants. Not does it matter to their cults.

I thought JTF wanted to be able to disagree with me. Poor guy is unable refute any of the content in my post, so he had to resort to making it about me personally. He can only play the cards he's been dealt, bless his heart.

Dave Dubya said...

ISIS militants are escaping due to Turkish bombing.

JTF, did they help us in Normandy?

Tired of all the winning, yet?

Just the Facts! said...

"Let's not pretend" now there's a joke if there ever was one. The entire remove Trump from the White House effort has been pretend from day one.

TB3 said...

Deflect, deflect, deflect

Never address the substance.


Dave Dubya said...

Instead of disagreeing with any of my post, JTF has decided to disagree on what a joke is. All without a trace of any understanding of humor.

List of "jokes" he gets:

1. "Russia, if you're listening..."
2. "Ukraine, if you're listening..."
3. "China, if you're listening..."

Schiff initially denied he knew anything about the complaint before it was filed, stating on Sep. 17: “We have not spoken directly with the whistleblower. We would like to."

But it later emerged that a member of his staff had spoken to the whistleblower before his complaint was submitted on Aug. 12. The Washington Post concluded that Schiff "clearly made a statement that was false."

***Clearly false***

Speaker Pelosi won’t let the House vote on “impeachment proceedings”, or give the President the due process all citizens deserve. Her tactics are un-democratic and un-American.
- Rep. Doug Collins

Dave Dubya said...


So? Only Republicans can get away with lies? The lies and "corruption" concerning Ukraine are from Rudy and Trump.

The House can run it's inquiry as it wishes. They are not under Trump's thumb like in his first two years.

The House investigates and submits findings. "Due process" is the Senate's job.

Learn some civics. "Her tactics are un-democratic and un-American." This is projection.

Inviting Russia, China and Ukraine to interfere in our elections is un-democratic and un-American. Not to mention a crime. LOCK THEM UP!

Dave Dubya said...

While JTF is busy with his ad hominem personal insults, I'll inform him of what his "pro-life" Trumpism is really doing. And yes, infanticide is happening.

Ethnic cleansing by Turkish Jihadists is underway.

Turkish state-backed media hails a “successful operation” to “neutralize” an unarmed 35-year old woman working to unite Arabs, Christians, and Kurds in NE Syria.

This is SUV of Syrian Future Party's co-head, Hervin_Khalaf which was ambushed by #Turkey's Jihadists. It is reported that #Turkish Air Force had it under surveillance with UAV flying from #Batman. Once it was in right place, FSA/SNA was ordered to ambush it to assassinate her!

#BREAKING: Execution of the driver of Co-Head of Syrian future party by terrorists of Turkey's Syria National Army or FSA in M4 Highway NE Syria. Hervin_Khalaf was still alive when this was recorded. She was executed & beheaded moments later.

Trump and his cult are abetting Jihadist terrorism. They can add that to their white nationalist terrorism in the US.

Theses monsters must be stopped. ALL of them, foreign and domestic.

Donald "ISIS" Trump's birthday gift to Putin even outrages Huckleberry.

“This is a big win for Iran and Assad, a big win for ISIS...The president’s assertion that the Islamic State has been defeated is the biggest lie being told by the administration.”

Just the Facts! said...

How Obama’s team set up Trump’s Syrian dilemma.... Trump inherited from Obama a dysfunctional strategy for countering ISIS, one that ensured ever-greater turmoil in the region and placed American forces in an impossible position.

Another point of view that Rev Dave will not to be seen on his VERY narrow minded blog.

The Syrian Kurds Are Not America’s Problem
We’ve done right in Iraq. Elsewhere, the Kurdish question is beyond anyone’s ken.

Dave Dubya said...

"We’ve done right in Iraq." Ask an Iraqi.

This con-servative opinion is filled with thousands of dead Americans and hundreds of thousands of dead Iraqis. ISIS was a direct result of invading Iraq.

Done right?

And since slaughtering and beheading Kurdish allies who fought ISIS is "not America's problem", then I'm sure that kind of logic should easily conclude women's reproductive choices are not the Republicans' problem either.

Also by that utterly stupid line of thinking, Hitler's genocide of European Jews wasn't "America's problem" either. How'd that work out?

Authoritarians have no conscience, and very little ability to think for themselves. Sad.

"Another point of view that Rev Dave will not to be seen on his VERY narrow minded blog." - JTF

Right, cause it's his personal blog with his personal views. There's no promise of "balance" between viewpoints when it's just his view point.

"The Syrian Kurds Are Not America’s Problem"

That's nice head-in-the-sand mentality. We provided them support in response to their assistance against the Islamic State. In typical Trumpian fashion, when something is no longer needed it gets tossed aside.
