US ambassador Jim Jeffrey lied about number of troops to thwart Pres. Trump’s policy of withdrawing from Syria

No U.S. President had ever been as lied about by the media, plotted against by the FBI/CIA, unceasingly harassed by the opposition party — the Democrats — with baseless accusations and impeachment, with those working in the administration not just disobeying but outright countermanding his policies and decisions as President Donald John Trump.

Here’s the latest, stunning example.

The State Department is notoriously left-leaning and a part of the D.C. swamp.

Despite Trump’s efforts to drain that swamp (see “Draining the Swamp: Mass exodus of senior staff from State Dept.” and “More ‘Drain the Swamp’ of the State Department“), from the beginning of Trump’s presidency, the State Department has been rebellious. See:

Now that the Demonrats believe Joe Biden has won the presidential election, James “Jim” Jeffrey, the outgoing U.S. Ambassador to Syria, is admitting his team lied about the number of troops in Syria so as to thwart President Trump’s policy of ending the war in Syria by withdrawing all U.S. troops from Syria.

Trump’s announcement in December 2018 of withdrawing from Syria led to the resignation of then-Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and then-Ambassador to Syria Brett McGurk.

Mattis has since become a dogged never-Trumper. But it must be noted that his resignation over Trump’s Syria policy was indisgenuous because months before resigning as defense secretary, Mattis had plotted to challenge Trump in the 2020 GOP primary.

Why Jim Jeffrey was appointed ambassador defies understanding because he had signed the infamous “Never Trump” letter while Trump was a presidential candidate in 2016. Jeffrey also gives foreign policy advice to Joe Biden.

In an interview with Defense One, Jeffrey said: “We were always playing shell games to not make clear to our leadership how many troops we had” in northeast Syria. The actual number of troops is “a lot more than” the roughly two hundred troops Trump initially agreed to leave there in 2019.

In 2018 and again in October of 2019  when Trump repeated the withdrawal order, the president maintained that ISIS had been defeated. But each time, he was convinced to leave a residual force in Syria and so the war continued.

Jeffrey said: “What Syria withdrawal? There was never a Syria withdrawal. When the situation in northeast Syria had been fairly stable after we defeated ISIS, [Trump] was inclined to pull out. In each case, we then decided to come up with five better arguments for why we needed to stay. And we succeeded both times. That’s the story.”

Defense One reporter Katie Bo Williams concludes:

Officially, Trump last year agreed to keep several hundred U.S. troops — somewhere between 200 and 400, according to varying reports at the time — stationed in northeast Syria to “secure” oil fields held by the United States’ Kurdish allies in the fight against ISIS. It is generally accepted that the actual number is now higher than that — anonymous officials put the number at about 900 today — but the precise figure is classified and remains unknown even, it appears, to members of Trump’s administration keen to end the so-called “forever wars.”

James Mattis is a rat

The dictionary defines the idiom “hit someone when he/she is down” as “To criticize, exploit, insult, or otherwise treat badly someone who has already suffered a setback or is in a vulnerable position.”

When a person is already being bludgeoned from all sides, that’s the time to strike your blow. It’s what a rat would do.

The New York Post reports June 3, 2020 that former Defense Secretary James Mattis unloaded on President Trump in a searing opinion piece, accusing him of abusing the powers of his office and of trying to divide the American people as our country is torn asunder by George Floyd riots, looting and burning, with police officers being attacked and killed.

In December 2018, Mattis the globalist resigned as defense secretary in protest of President Trump’s Syria policy because Trump wanted to pull U.S. military out of Syria, ISIS having been brought under some control.

Saying that he was “horrified” by the deployment of smoke cannisters and pepper balls against a mob at Lafayette Park outside the White House on Monday evening. Mattis called Trump’s defense of the White House “abuse of power.” He wrote in an op-ed published by The Atlantic on Wednesday:

“Donald Trump is the first president in my lifetime who does not try to unite the American people — does not even pretend to try. Instead he tries to divide us. We are witnessing the consequences of three years of this deliberate effort. We are witnessing the consequences of three years without mature leadership. I have watched this week’s unfolding events, angry and appalled.”

Mattis piously announced he supported the “wholesome and unifying” demands of demonstrators protesting the death of George Floyd across the nation. He wrote:

“When I joined the military, some 50 years ago, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution. Never did I dream that troops taking that same oath would be ordered under any circumstance to violate the Constitutional rights of their fellow citizens — much less to provide a bizarre photo op for the elected commander-in-chief, with military leadership standing alongside. We know that we are better than the abuse of executive authority that we witnessed in Lafayette Square. We must reject and hold accountable those in office who would make a mockery of our Constitution.”

Mattis then called on Americans to reject the President’s calls for cities to be “dominated” by the National Guard — a sentiment shared by another rat, current Defense Secretary Mark Esper, who announced earlier Wednesday that he opposed the use of military to arrest protests and violence.

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany told reporters Wednesday that the order to clear protesters came from Attorney General William Barr, and not the president. But Mattis clearly does not let facts stand in the way of his grandstanding and piling on.

Good news! Judge rules “ISIS bride” is not a US citizen

ISIS bride Muthana and her child

Back in February I told you about Hoda Muthana, an American jihadi bride living in a refugee camp after fleeing ISIS’s last stand in Syria. She left Alabama in 2014 in order to join ISIS. She called for US Muslims to ‘spill all of the blood’ by launching terror attacks during Memorial Day events.

She claims she was “brainwashed” and made a big mistake. Read that whole story here.

Muthana then changed her mind and was begging the US to allow her to return home.

Thankfully a judge turned down her request.

NY Post reports that a judge ruled that America is under no obligation to let her back into the country. From their report:

Judge Reggie Walton (appointed by George W. Bush) found there was enough evidence to prove Muthana — the US-born mom who fled her home in Alabama to join the terror group in Syria in 2014 but has been begging to come back to the US — was born while her father was a Yemeni diplomat, BuzzFeed News reported.

The judge said Muthana’s father, Ahmed Ali Muthana, can’t provide financial support to either her or her 2-year-old son, Adam, who was born in ISIS territory, without facing potential charges of providing material support to terrorism.

Christina Jump, one of the lawyers representing the Muthana family, confirmed the judge’s ruling in a statement obtained by The Post.

“While we are disappointed with and disagree with the Court’s ruling today, this is not the end of our client’s legal options. We will wait to read the Court’s written opinion, and will evaluate our available options at that time,” Jump said.

Ahmed claimed in a lawsuit against the Trump administration that he surrendered his diplomatic status on June 2, 1994, months before his daughter was born in Hackensack, New Jersey. Her family said Hoda also had a legitimate passport when she left the US to join ISIS.

The Obama administration initially determined she was not a citizen and notified her family that it was revoking her passport in January 2016.

Babies born in the US are typically granted citizenship, but those born to foreign diplomatic officers are exceptions, under the Immigration and Nationality Act.

In previous interviews, Hoda, 25, has claimed she’s a “changed” woman who no longer holds the same ideology as ISIS followers.

“I hope America doesn’t think I’m a threat to them and I hope they can accept me,” she said in February, speaking from a refugee camp in northern Syria.

An open letter to (ret.) Adm. William McRaven from former Army intelligence officer

William H. McRaven, 63, is a retired United States Navy admiral who was nominated by Barack Obama to be the 9th commander of the U.S. Special Operations Command (2011-2014). After he retired from the military, McRaven was the chancellor of the University of Texas system (2015-2018).

In August 2018, McRaven penned an open letter in The Washington Post entitled “Revoke my security clearance, too, Mr. President,” in which the craven retired admiral castigated President Trump for revoking former Obama Administration CIA Director John Brennan’s security clearance. McRaven praised Brennan, a crypto Muslim who once voted for the Communist Party,  as “a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question”. The retired Obama-nominee admiral then scolded President Trump that through his actions, Trump had “embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation.” Never mind the fact that Trump’s revocation of Brennan’s security clearance was in August 2018, one-and-a-half-years after the unceasing efforts by Democrats and “never-Trump” Republicans to divide America with their opposition and even threats of assassination against a duly-elected sitting President.

Most recently, on October 17, 2019, McRaven poison-penned an op-ed in The New York Times with the hysterical headline, “Our Republic Is Under Attack From the President,” bellowing that if Trump did not demonstrate leadership, the sooner he is replaced, the better. In a CNN interview the same day, McRaven said Trump was undermining domestic institutions and damaging America’s international standing because of the President’s decision to withdraw U.S. forces from Syria.

Below is an Open Letter to McRaven, dated August 17, 2018, from Ray Starmann, the editor-in-chief of U.S. Defense Watch, former U.S. Army captain and intelligence officer, and combat veteran of the 7th Cavalry:

Dear Admiral McRaven:

Your op-ed yesterday, which was picked up by every liberal media outlet in the country, was sadly indicative of the current state of mind of many of our nation’s recently retired and active duty senior military leaders.

You stated that former CIA director John Brennan, “is one of the finest public servants I have ever known. Few Americans have done more to protect this country than John. He is a man of unparalleled integrity, whose honesty and character have never been in question, except by those who don’t know him.”

The man whom you describe as being a cross between George Washington, Abraham Lincoln and Mother Theresa is a deep state hack; who, along with other Obama holdouts, is openly and aggressively pursuing a coup d’etat against the current President of the United States, for one reason and one reason only – his side lost the election.

Frankly, I can’t think of any actions that are more un-American, and against the values that Americans hold dear and that which so many Americans died for in the past.

What you call unparalleled integrity, I call honest to goodness treason.

Former CIA director Brennan, whom you state has honesty and character authorized the CIA to spy on American citizens, tried to rig a Presidential election and then lied to Congress about that spying. A man you claim has unparalleled integrity was caught fabricating stories about attacks on US personnel in Libya and providing weapons to ISIS backed militias in Syria.

Mr. Brennan also voted once for a communist candidate. How Mr. Brennan was hired as DCI after voting for a communist and why you support a man who once did, is a mystery to everyone but you and God.

Former members of the special operations community do not share your adoration for Mr. Brennan. Kris “Tanto” Paronto, a former Army Ranger and private security contractor who was part of the CIA team that fought back during the 2012 Benghazi terror attack, accused Brennan of putting his “politics” before those in the field.

On Twitter, Paronto stated: “My principles are greater than clearances too John Brennan, especially when you and the @CIA kool-aid drinkers punishes us for not going along with the Benghazi cover-up story in order to protect you, @HillaryClinton’s & @BarackObama’s failures. You put your politics before us.” 

Mr. Brennan was recently referred to by retired Army Brigadier General Anthony Tata as a ‘clear and present danger’ to the nation.

No doubt John Brennan’s complete absence of integrity and his erratic behavior are what convinced the President to revoke his clearance. Mr. Brennan stated that “Trump’s … performance in Helsinki, exceeds the threshold of ‘high crimes & misdemeanors.’ It was … treasonous.”

In a recent article, Pat Buchanan stated that had Brennan made the same accusations of treason against former President Andrew Jackson, ‘he would have been challenged to a duel and shot.’

As you know sir, on the security clearance form, Question 29 reads, ‘have you ever supported overthrowing the U.S. Government?’

I think it’s more than apparent, from his nightly rantings on CNN to his Twitter expletives that John Brennan supports over-throwing the President and the current cabinet members of the US government.

You also wrote, sir, in reference to the President, “Through your actions, you have embarrassed us in the eyes of our children, humiliated us on the world stage and, worst of all, divided us as a nation,”

Actually, Admiral, the only person who has humiliated the US on the world stage in the last decade is Barack Hussein Obama. During the eight years of the Obama administrations, the world watched as the US cow-towed to Iranian thugs, let the Chinese run rings around us in the Pacific, while ISIS murdered tens of thousands of innocent people in the Middle East. Believe me, Admiral, the children of Syria and Iraq are rejoicing in their liberation from ISIS mass murderers. And, the people of the Middle East and across the world are sleeping soundly tonight, knowing that an incompetent, narcissistic maniac like Hillary Clinton isn’t sitting in the Oval Office.

As far as the nation’s current political schism, you need only look at your fellow liberals who are inciting violence and propagating hatred on a daily basis.

You then dared the Commander in Chief to revoke your security clearance.

I’m sure you’re aware of the following regulation in the UCMJ. Retired military officers are subject to the Uniform Code of Military Justice (UCMJ) under Article 2 of the UCMJ, which extends the jurisdiction of military law to “Retired members of a regular component of the armed forces who are entitled to pay.” “Retirees are subject to the UCMJ and may be tried by court-martial for violations … that occurred … while in a retired status.”

Article 88 of the UCMJ criminalizes “contemptuous words against the President, the Vice President, Congress, the Secretary of Defense, the Secretary of a military department, the Secretary of Homeland Security, or the Governor or legislature of any State.”

Something to ponder, sir.

No doubt your op-ed was designed to whip up some more anti-Trump hysteria and to usher you into the political arena. No doubt you are a serving member of the ‘resistance.’ No doubt, you have your eyes on some office space in the capitol building or in the White House. No doubt, you have your eyes on the prize, all at the expense of the nation you once served.

When I read your op-ed, sir, I wondered where and when and why you went wrong. How does someone from a military family, a SEAL, who came of age in the Reagan years; someone who understands what it’s like to be on a team; the camaraderie, the toughness mentally and physically required; someone who grew up reading about people like Patton, MacArthur, Lee, Grant, Teddy Roosevelt and Hal Moore- How does a guy like that end up aligning himself with the party of Pelosi, Sanders and Ocasio-Cortez, and slime like Hillary who was chanting baby killer back at Wellesley, and “too gutless to serve, I hate the military” Bill…?

How does a guy like you still support the destructive policies of Obama, and furthermore, how does a guy like you support Brennan, when you know damned well Brennan was a communist, and that he perjured himself in front of Congress, how does that happen?

You, sir, are representative of what is, in my opinion, as a former Army Captain and combat veteran of the 7th Cavalry, the worst generation of senior leaders this nation has ever fielded. Bar None. The majority of you, were and are what the late Colonel David Hackworth so eloquently described as ‘perfumed princes.’

It doesn’t matter how many degrees you have; how many combat tours you did and how much fruit salad you earned. It doesn’t matter that you have the SEAL Trident.

Your generation of senior leaders sold and is selling out the nation’s defense to the highest bidder and that bidder is social engineering and leftist ideology. You and your generation of leftist senior leaders have allowed our military to be destroyed for the greater glory of pensions, Tricare and political power, national security be damned. Now, that you’ve overseen the decimation of our military, you are determined to overthrow a sitting President because he represents everything anathema to the left – America First and the fact that the USA IS AND ALWAYS WILL BE THE GREATEST COUNTRY ON THE FACE OF THE EARTH.

You are all nothing more than political hacks; Obama leftists fighting some kind of insurgent anti-Trump campaign like a division of crazed left-wing fanatics holed up in the Beltway National Redoubt, waiting for a last op order from der Fuehrer, Barack Hussein Obama.

I believe sir, that you need to examine your conscience and ask yourself one very important question – what in the name of God Almighty would Hillary Clinton have done for anyone in this country?

The answer is nothing.

More #FakeNews: ABC airs Kentucky gun range video as Turkish “bombing” of Syria

ABC apologized for their “mistake:”

“CORRECTION: We’ve taken down video that aired on “World News Tonight” Sunday and “Good Morning America” this morning that appeared to be from the Syrian border immediately after questions were raised about its accuracy,” the network tweeted. “ABC News regrets the error.”

This was NO MISTAKE. It was an attempt to sway peoples’ opinion about President Trump and his recent actions in Syria.

The MSM is ramping up their attempts to influence the 2020 elections. Don’t be fooled by the #FAKENEWS.

Read about the whole “apology” here.

Why President Trump fired John Bolton

Yesterday, Sept. 10, 2019, in a pair of tweet, President Trump announced that he had terminated neoConservative (i.e., warmonger for Israel) National Security Advisor John Bolton, citing strong disagreement on “many of his suggestions” regarding foreign policy. Trump wrote:

“I informed John Bolton last night that his services are no longer needed at the White House. I disagreed strongly with many of his suggestions, as did others in the Administration, and therefore I asked John for his resignation, which was given to me this morning. I thank John very much for his service. I will be naming a new National Security Advisor next week.”

It was in April 2018 that Trump appointed Bolton as his third national security advisor, to succeed Army Gen. H.R. McMaster.

Shortly after President Trump’s announcement, Bolton tweeted that he had offered his resignation Monday evening:

Bloomberg News reports, citing an unnamed White House official, that Deputy National Security Advisor Charles Kupperman will take over as Bolton’s acting replacement, Bloomberg News reports, citing an unnamed White House official.

Joshua Caplan of Breitbart confirms that Bolton’s departure stems from his “hawkish” (i.e., pro-war) foreign policy differences with President Trump over (1) ending the war in Afghanistan, now the longest U.S. war ever; (2) ending the U.S. war in Syria; and (3) rapprochement with North Korea.

Caplan writes:

News of Bolton’s departure follows reports that he and Vice President Mike Pence opposed plans for the president to hold peace talks at Camp David with the Taliban regarding the U.S. withdrawing troops from Afghanistan. The president has denied there were disagreements between himself and others in the White House.

Bolton’s championed hawkish foreign policy views dating back to the Reagan administration and became a household name over his vociferous support for the Iraq War as the U.S. ambassador to the U.N. under George W. Bush.

Since joining the administration in the spring of last year, Bolton has espoused skepticism about the president’s whirlwind rapprochement with North Korea and has advocated against President Trump’s decision last year to pull U.S. troops out of Syria. He masterminded a quiet campaign inside the administration and with allies abroad to persuade President Trump to keep U.S. forces in Syria to counter the remnants of the Islamic State and Iranian influence in the region.

Trump’s sacking of Bolton has the approval of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY), who tweeted, “I commend @realDonaldTrump for this necessary action. The President has great instincts on foreign policy and ending our endless wars. He should be served by those who share those views.”

I agree with Sen. Paul.

Donald Trump is no fool. Notice a consistent pattern emerging in both his handling of foreign and domestic affairs: When something happens, Trump’s first reaction seems to accord with the neoCons in foreign affairs, and with the Left in domestic affairs. But then, he wouldn’t actually do what those factions want and, in time, would moderate and effectively void his initial statements.

Months before resigning as defense secretary, James Mattis plotted to challenge President Trump in 2020 GOP primary

James Mattis, 68, former U.S. Marine Corps general who was widely revered by rank-and-file Marines for his blunt talk and leadership, was recruited by President Trump into his administration as Secretary of Defense, to the roaring approval of conservatives and patriots.

See “Obama regime purges 5th senior military officer: Cmdr of CENTCOM James Mattis

Mattis was defense secretary for only two years, from January 20, 2017 to December 31, 2018.

According to Wikipedia, on December 20, 2018, a day after Trump’s announcement of an immediate U.S. withdrawal from Syria over the objections of his national security advisers, Mattis submitted his resignation after failing to persuade Trump to reconsider. Mattis had recently said that the U.S. would remain in Syria following the defeat of ISIL to ensure they did not regroup.

Mattis’ resignation letter contained language that appeared to criticize Trump’s worldview, such as praising NATO which Trump has often derided. In his letter, Mattis wrote that Trump has “the right to have a Secretary of Defense whose views are better aligned with [his] on these and other subjects” and that his resignation would be effective February 28, 2019. Three days later, angered by Mattis’ implicit criticism of Trump’s worldview, Trump moved Mattis’ departure date up to January 1. A day after Mattis’ departure, on January 2, 2019, Trump criticized Mattis’ performance as Secretary of Defense and said he had “essentially fired him.”

Now we know the real reason why Mattis resigned or was fired: At least seven months before he resigned, Mattis had put together a plan to challenge Trump in the 2020 Republican primary elections.

This stunning news is from Big League Politics, whose sources are:

  1. Travis Snyder, 25, an Indiana-based political consultant who was the point man for a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election. Insiders say Snyder is close to Vice President Mike Pence.
  2. Alex Rountree, a conservative consultant whom Snyder tried to recruit for the Mattis team.

As recounted by Patrick Howley for Big League Politics, May 22, 2019, then Defense Secretary “James Mattis and some White House employees were directly aware of and monitoring a team working to launch a Mattis Republican primary campaign against President Donald Trump in the 2020 election, according to documents obtained by Big League Politics and statements from the organizers who put the team together.”

In a series of interview, Travis Snyder told Big League Politics: “My job was to see what his [Mattis’] pathway to the White House would look like. There was a very small team. I oversaw early states polling, putting together possible running mates. I did not work with the fundraising team. I solely looked at what his path to the nomination would look like, and then his pathway to the White House. General Mattis was aware of the effort. He knew of the team, who exactly brought the team together. There are people who currently serve in the White House who knew that the team was coming together. This group is no longer active.”

Snyder kicked off his Mattis whisper campaign by planting an article with Andrew Feinberg, who wrote an August 2018 piece for Beltway Breakfast headlined, “Defense Secretary Mattis Weighing 2020 Bid, Predicts He’d ‘Kick Trump’s Ass’“.

August 2018 was four months before Mattis submitted his resignation.

Mattis’ running mate prospects included Nikki Haley, the Trump administration’s U.S. ambassador to the UN (2017-2018), and Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-Texas).

Snyder said Nikki Haley and Dan Creshaw were polled as a VP nominee in the event that Mattis ran. Also Jackie Walorski, Mitch Daniels, and regional smaller named people like Staff Sergeant Johnny Joe Jones. Snyder said his team also polled Vice President Mike Pence’s chances to run against Trump, but found that Pence had no chance.

Snyder declined to name the donors to the effort or the main person organizing it.

Snyder approached conservative consultant Alex Rountree about being part of the team, but Rountree told Big League Politics he wanted nothing to do with it. Rountree had signed a Non-Disclosure Agreement with Snyder, but the agreement is now expired.

Rountree says he never had any intention of helping Snyder, only in exposing the establishment plot to betray President Trump. Rountree identifies Snyder as being “good family friends with Pence” and also an adviser to Jackie Walorski, the congresswoman in Pence’s old district. According to Rountree, Snyder made it appear that Pence was supportive of the primary challenge to Trump. Rountree told Big League Politics:

“He [Snyder] was fluffing around a little bit about Pence, saying, ‘Pence wouldn’t be upset if Mattis ran.’ Somebody who knew the President’s every move all the time was working with Mattis: that turned out to be (John) Kelly. They were hoping for Nikki Haley on the ticket. [Snyder was trying to put together] 15 consultants or operatives in 15 different states. He said he had a polling firm that just signed an NDA that worked for the [Ted] Cruz campaign.”

Ted Cruz’s pollster during the 2016 election was The Polling Company, the president and CEO of which was KellyAnne Conway, who resigned from the company on January 20, 2017 to become Counselor to President Trump. Snyder did not deny Conway’s possible involvement in the Mattis team.

Snyder told Rountree that the Mattis team had representatives in Arizona, Michigan, Virginia and Florida.

Below are screenshots of handwritten notes that Rountree took of his conversations with Snyder on May 16 and 17, 2018, seven months before James Mattis submitted his letter of resignation:
