Some Trumpsters have their panties in a wad over the Presidents air strikes in Syria, others are praising the military reaction to Assads use of chemical weapons on his own people. Personally I hope he can prove it was Assad, if not there could be hell to pay, but that’s the rub. We don’t know.
We all took Colin Powells word that Saddam had weapons of mass destruction,
maybe he did, maybe he didn’t he did, (* per a comment I would like to say that Saddam DID have WMD’s, I should have worded the previous sentence differently). Bush the Younger went to congress and the UN for support on military action giving Saddam time to move whatever weapons he may have had. Many said he moved them to Syria, who knows?
My point being nobody in the general public knows the evidence that was used by the President in his decision. I am sure as the weeks go by the information will come out. What Trump did do was not show his hand, he had his people condemn the chemical attacks but he didn’t tip off anyone there would be a military response, that is refreshing.
The possibility of getting bogged down in conflict with another middle eastern country is not something Trump should consider, and I don’t think he has any intentions to do so, his past comments on Syria show he wanted Syria to handle it’s own problems. That being said Trump had to do something, he did, it’s done, and that should be the end of it unless provoked again. The ball is in Syrias court.
So for now everyone needs to settle down, the information will come out and let the chips fall where they may. You don’t know the details nor do I, knee jerk reactions are for the fools on television who know as much as we do yet offer up “expert” opinions on something they know nothing about. If they hate Trump the story is his flip flopping on his previous stance regarding Syria, if they favor Trump it was a measured response, regardless somebody gassed women and children and that just cannot stand.
Lead, follow, or get the hell out of the way. Trump made a decision, what the hell did you expect him to do?by jeffli6 with 9 comments
Trying to understand what the hell is going on in Syria. I turn to cable news to get information that “might” be helpful, what do I get…..
Fox News – Shep Smith and Marie Harf, WTF????
MSNBC – Jennings, Maddow, and Andrea Mitchel. Ugh..
CNN = Don Lemon and a bunch of pin head analysts ripping Trump for no strategy and flip flopping. Figures
What a fucking joke. Apparently all the adults have gone to bed.

All of these people recusing themselves from various investigations is infuriating. Nunes being the latest, Sessions, and of course Mike Flynn being let go just gives credence to the Democrats claims that the Trumpapalooza tour is in disarray.
The thing that I don’t understand is, if Trump is such a fighter why allow the lefties to run his bus off the road? We/I wanted a brawler in the White House, somebody with some balls to take on the left with brass knuckles and a bad attitude. Unfortunately, starting with Flynn, were watching the left and their media bully their way around Washington as if they are still untouchable. How can this happen when Republicans have what they have always coveted, the house, senate, and White House, all under their control.
I know that they went the “Nuclear Option” on Gorsuch which does show some semblance of wielding power but that should have been a no brainer. How long before the next
whispers leaks of a Trump roadie getting railroaded off the team with some bullshit tactic by the left? They’ve gotten away with three victories so far against what I thought was a formidable opponent, a Republican majority.
Time for Republicans to grow a pair and start busting heads. Expose the reports Susan Rice scrubbed, call out Schumer and his minions and demand proof of Trump/Russia collusion, if they can’t produce it, demand an apology on the Senate floor to be written into the federal registry. If no wrong doing is found by Mike Flynn reinstate him in a position that was vacated by an Obama holdover that was fired by Trump. Let Schumer and Pelosi know that any more shenanigans will result in charges by Trumps DOJ against Hillary and her bathroom server.
Quit acting like Republicans have some moral authority to do the right thing, this is a street fight and the left is cheating, time to grab the ball bat and start fighting dirty.
“Several leftwing activist groups have filed accusations against me with the Office of Congressional Ethics. The charges are entirely false and politically motivated, and are being leveled just as the American people are beginning to learn the truth about the improper unmasking of the identities of U.S. citizens and other abuses of power.”
“Despite the baselessness of the charges, I believe it is in the best interests of the House Intelligence Committee and the Congress for me to have Representative Mike Conaway, with assistance from Representatives Trey Gowdy and Tom Rooney, temporarily take charge of the Committee’s Russia investigation while the House Ethics Committee looks into this matter.”
House Speaker Paul Ryan Statement:
“Devin Nunes has earned my trust over many years for his integrity and dedication to the critical work that the intelligence community does to keep America safe. He continues to have that trust, and I know he is eager to demonstrate to the Ethics Committee that he has followed all proper guidelines and laws.
In the meantime, it is clear that this process would be a distraction for the House Intelligence Committee’s investigation into Russian interference in our election. Chairman Nunes has offered to step aside as the lead Republican on this probe, and I fully support this decision. Chairman Mike Conaway, a senior member of the Committee, will now lead this investigation in the House. I am confident that he will oversee a professional investigation into Russia’s actions and follow the facts wherever they lead.”
Interim Chairman Mike Conway Statement:
“I have been a member of the House Intelligence Committee for over eight years now, and it is a responsibility I take with the utmost seriousness. My profession as a CPA and auditor has taught me to be objective and methodical, and that is how I intend to help lead this investigation. I am confident that Ranking Member Schiff and I will be able to work together to conduct an effective, bipartisan investigation.
“I must emphasize that this is a temporary position- Chairman Nunes has my full support, and I am confident these charges levied by outside activists will be proven false. I thank Speaker Ryan and Chairman Nunes for entrusting me, along with Representatives Rooney and Gowdy, with this matter of critical importance to our national security.”

Syria, Iran, Turkey, Somalia, Libya, Afghanistan, Iraq, ect….the quagmire of countries with internal conflict and Islamic terror.
London, Germany, Italy, France, Sweden, and others dealing with terrorists and struggling economies.
In the US, the economy, healthcare, protests, and a myriad of other issues that needed to be dealt with by a Presidents administration.
Yet Obama wanted information about Trump?
Why in the world, with all of the global problems facing the United States, would the Presidents Daily Briefing contain national security items involving then candidate Donald Trump and his team?
This was purely political. The only reason you have your National Security Adviser request the names of Trump and his people was to embarrass, harass, and get dirt or information on his team with the intention of helping Hillary. Then after Trump won, Obama changed the rules and it was used as a political weapon…ie, Mike Flynn.
As clear as the nose on your face.

So the sacrificial lamb seems to be Susan Rice, if the reports are correct.
Remember she got away with lying about Benghazi being caused by an internet video, Obama and Hillary both backed that story. Nothing….NOTHING has come of the Benghazi investigation which leads me to believe that NOTHING will come of another investigation, there is only one way to find out.
If she unmasked the names of private citizens and spread that information to various agencies for political purposes she should be prosecuted, Trump should NOT order an investigation, he SHOULD order his Justice department to arrest her and let the chips fall where they may. She’s not been found guilty of squat and presumed innocent but she is the one who has been fingered as the culprit and should be judged accordingly.
Susan Rice doesn’t seem bright enough to have hatched this scheme on her own, she was used as a puppet for Obama on the Benghazi fiasco and is the definition of useful idiot. This smacks of Obama, Hillary, and Valerie Jarrett. Maybe the threat of taking the fall for them may get her singing, who knows.
If Rice assumed Hillary was the inevitable winner of the presidency she probably wasn’t concerned any of this would come out, her actions may have just been an insurance policy to tank Trump during his campaign. When Trump won Obama and Jarrett decided to change the rules and spread the intelligence throughout various agencies to muddy the waters.
