Friday the 13th is usually a bad omen. For President Donald Trump, it was an intense day. He brought fear to a lot of terrible people today.
First: Syria. On April 4th 2018, Bashar Assad, Syrian dictator, used chemical weapons against his own people AGAIN. Trump sent cruise missiles against his bases in 2017. Well, he attacked Syria again today.
Trump address on Syria HERE
Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg statementon Syria HERE
French President Emmanuel Macron statement on Syria “Dozens of men, women and children were massacred using chemical weapons in Douma on Saturday, 7 April. The red line has been crossed. I have therefore ordered the French armed forces to intervene.”
So Trump isn’t starting World War III all by himself.
Syria says “BREAKING: Pro-Assad official says around 30 missiles fired at Syria during attack, a third were shot down; government assessing damage – Reuters”
In fact, US, France, and the UK used both Missiles and Bombers with escorting fighter aircraft on this raid. NONE were intercepted by Syria according to Secretary of Defense Jim Maddog Mattis. No ground troops were involved.
Goals of the attack according to U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford:
•Scientific research center near Damascus
•Chem weapons storage facility near Homs
•Storage facility, command post in same area
picked for significance to the chem weapons program & mitigated risk of collateral damage/civilian casualties
Russian statement “#BREAKING: Russian Ambassador to U.S. on Syria strikes: “The worst apprehensions have come true…We warned that such actions will not be left without consequences.” See picture
Actually, LOL. ‘Fightin’ words’ – Except of course, the Russians got out of dodge as soon as the US Navy showed up, some 4-5 days ago. They’ll do nothing. If they try, however, indeed they will learn that actions have consequences. For them!
Here is a great piece on Russian ability to respond. YES You SHOULD be laughing at them!
Bashar Assad: That face you make when you realize the air defense system you spent a fortune on was just a bunch of stereo parts attached to a Sega console
DOJ/FBI Inspector General report on Andrew McCabe – HERE (35 pages long, summaries in below articles)
Raid on Trump personal attorney Michael Cohen this week was a very big deal. The truth is, it was done by the NY FBI field office and not by Robert Mueller who is investigating Trump Russia collusion. This shows it has nothing to do with targeting President Trump.
Summary this week:
1) In less than 24 hours we have had:
*The IG report on McCabe shows he was the criminal we all knew he was
*Announcement that there are at least TWO other IG reports coming
* the US forced Syria’s Assad to flee to Iran with a few cruise missiles and no civilian casualties
* Attacked Syria after telling Russia to flee
* launched a global war against pedophiles by shutting down and charging owners of “Backpage” website used for sex trafficking.
*began a massive overhaul of welfare requiring work for benefits
***And just to tweak the democrat dummies, the President pardoned Scooter Libby.
In other news you aren’t seeing on Television, Iran is STILL facing massive internal regime change activity. Read THIS take on events:
In short, Democrats are facing 2018 mid term election woes, FBI & DOJ are cleaning house of corruption, Syria just got smacked hard, Clinton is in trouble, Russia ran away from Trumps Syria attacks, Iran is collapsing, North Korea is negotiating, China caved on Trumps tariff demands, and Americans are facing 4% GDP growth this year in our smoking hot economy. Life is getting better every day!
