President Trump ends Obama administration’s insane policy of arming Syrian jihadists

The United States is supposed to be fighting Muslim jihadists like ISIS/Islamic State and Al Qaeda.

Under Obama, however, the CIA has been arming and training so-called rebels in Syria who, we are told, are “moderates,” but in reality are jihadists. See:

The proof? — An email from Jacob Sullivan to “H” (Hillary Clinton?), dated February 12, 2012, in which Sullivan states “AQ [Al Qaeda] is on our side in Syria”.

Note: Jacob Sullivan, 40, had worked under Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as the State Department’s Director of Policy Planning from Feb. 4, 2011 to Feb. 15, 2013. (Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State from Jan. 21, 2009 to Feb. 1, 2013.) Sullivan was senior policy adviser to Hillary’s failed 2016 presidential campaign. If Hillary had won the election, Sullivan would be a contender for the position of National Security Advisor.

Below is Sullivan’s email:

Now, President Trump is ending Obama’s insane policy of arming Syrian jihadists.

The Washington Post reports, July 19, 2017, that “President Trump has decided to end the CIA’s covert program to arm and train moderate Syrian rebels battling the government of Bashar al-Assad.”

But this being the anti-Trump Washington Post, the paper snidely calls President Trump’s decision “a move long sought by Russia,” as if Trump does not have a mind of his own.

WaPo continues:

The program [of arming Syrian “rebels”] was a central plank of a policy begun by the Obama administration in 2013 to put pressure on Assad to step aside, but even its backers have questioned its efficacy since Russia deployed forces in Syria two years later.

Officials said the phasing out of the secret program reflects Trump’s interest in finding ways to work with Russia, which saw the anti-Assad program as an assault on its interests. The shuttering of the program is also an acknowledgment of Washington’s limited leverage and desire to remove Assad from power. […]

Officials said Trump made the decision to scrap the CIA program nearly a month ago, after an Oval Office meeting with CIA Director Mike Pompeo and national security adviser H.R. McMaster ahead of a July 7 meeting in Germany with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Spokesmen for the National Security Council and the CIA declined to comment.

After the Trump-Putin meeting, the United States and Russia announced an agreement to back a new cease-fire in southwest Syria, along the Jordanian border, where many of the CIA-backed rebels have long operated. Trump described the limited cease-fire deal as one of the benefits of a constructive working relationship with Moscow. […]

The decision on the CIA-backed rebels will be welcomed by Moscow, which focused its firepower on those fighters after it intervened in Syria in 2015. […]

With the end of the CIA program, U.S. involvement in Syria now consists of a vigorous air campaign against the Islamic State and a Pentagon-run train-and-equip program in support of the largely Kurdish rebel force that is advancing on Islamic State strongholds in Raqqa and along the Euphrates River valley.”

Father Daniel Maes, a Flemish priest who had lived in Syria since 2010, will certainly welcome President Trump’s ending of Obama’s insane policy of arming Syrian jihadists.

According to 79-year-old Fr. Maes, the western media’s coverage of the Syrian war is based on lies. The problem is not Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, who does not persecute Christians. Rather, the problem is U.S.-NATO politicians who support ISIS and Al Nusra (the name of Al Qaeda in Syria) in their quest to topple the Syrian government. As Fr. Maes puts it,

“Christians in Syria suffer from the fact that their fellow-Christians in the West forsake them. They simply do not understand. The real terrorist leaders are in the West and Saudi Arabia. Without Putin, Syria would have ceased to exist.”

Asked by journalist Eric van de Beek why so many countries (U.S., NATO, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Israel) want to get rid of Assad, Fr. Maes replies:

“In 2009, Qatar asked Bashar al-Assad to permit running a pipeline through Syria to the Mediterranean. Assad said, ‘We are not going to do that because we are already working on such a pipeline with Russia and Iran.’ Then the war began. Not in 2011.

We must not forget: Homs [a city in western Syria] is an important location for the passage of the pipeline. It’s no coincidence that the violence started right there, and that Qatar’s TV station Al Jazeera was on top of it.

For the West, it is unacceptable that Syria is still one of the few countries with a central bank that is truly independent and that the country had no state debt and thus did not need to be ‘saved’.

And the Turks. They just want to revive the Ottoman empire. It’s scandalous what they did in Aleppo. The city of Aleppo was the industrial heart of Syria. The Turks dismantled all of the factories in a few days and took them to Turkey.

Israel is also a very important motor behind the conflict. The Zionists want a pure Jewish state from the Nile to the Euphrates. They want to chop up Syria into a group of small, weak states, fighting each other. Likewise the old Roman motto: Divide et empera. Divide and rule.

The Israelis are bombarding Syria, they treat injured terrorists and they deliver weapons.

I think Zionism is as bad for Judaism as ISIS is for Islam. But let’s not say that out loud, for many Protestants might take you for the devil.”

While acknowledging that the Russians are aiding Assad partly out of self-interest, Fr. Maes nevertheless points out that:

“Putin is a true Christian, wanting to defend Christianity. And he also wants a multipolar world order, in which no country dominates the rest. It annoys Putin that the Americans do not play by international rules. They overthrew the Ukrainian government, and then had the nerve to say that the Russians responded so aggressively. Syria is a sovereign country. That is what Putin emphasises. He also says: ‘We are not there for the protection of Assad, but for the protection of the Syrian statehood.’ Russia doesn’t want another failed state, like Iraq and Libya. And let’s not forget: The Russian military is the only foreign army in Syria with the consent of the Syrian government. What are other countries doing there? The Americans? The French? The Saudis? They have no right to be there. They are working on the destruction of Syria.”

Fr. Maes is right about Israel aiding the Syrian jihadists. See my post, “Pact with the devil: Israel gives weapons and free medical care to Syrian jihad,” Dec. 21, 2015.

In ending the CIA’s arming of Syrian rebels jihadists, President Trump will also reduce the outflow of Syrian “refugees” into Europe and America.

God bless President Trump!

On cue: Susan Rice suggests race, gender bias linked to ‘unmasking’ backlash

Of course.

From Fox News: Susan Rice, the Obama national security adviser under fire over her alleged involvement in the “unmasking” of Trump associates during the 2016 presidential election, suggested in a fresh interview that race and gender might be playing a role in the scrutiny she’s faced.

In an interview with journalist Michael Tomasky for New York Magazine, Rice reportedly questioned the criticism she’s faced dating back to the Benghazi controversy. “Why me? Why not Jay Carney, for example, who was then our press secretary, who stood up more?” she asked.

Tomasky noted in the piece that Carney “isn’t an African-American woman, of course” and apparently asked Rice whether that is the key factor. Rice, in response, left the door open:

“I don’t know… I do not leap to the simple explanation that it’s only about race and gender. I’m trying to keep my theories to myself until I’m ready to come out with them. It’s not because I don’t have any.” 

But Rice mentioned other prominent female figures – like Hillary Clinton and Condoleezza Rice – who faced “ad hominem” attacks, suggesting a correlation.

Asked about the comments, a Republican Capitol Hill source pushed back. “This is screaming out for attention… She’s saying I don’t know why they all started picking on me to begin with.”

As to the suggestion of race and gender being a factor, the source countered, then “why would there be a subpoena for a white male?”

That was a reference to the fact that Rice is not the only focus of the congressional probe into unmasking. Investigators have issued subpoenas to three different agencies: NSA, CIA and FBI.

Those subpoenas have asked for unmasking information related to three individuals: former CIA Director John Brennan, former U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Samantha Power, and Rice.

She’s not the only focus of congressional frustration, either. Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., had a tense exchange with a top intelligence community lawyer at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Tuesday where he complained he still doesn’t have an answer on whether his communications have been monitored.

“Am I ever gonna get [the response] in my lifetime?” he asked.

Rice told Judy Woodruff on PBS on March 22 that she “knew nothing” about the unmasking of Trump associates. But weeks later on MSNBC, she admitted she sometimes sought out the identities of Trump associates who communicated with foreigners, a request known as “unmasking” in the intelligence community. But “I leaked nothing to nobody,” Rice told MSNBC.

Rice initially became a target of Republican criticism back in 2012 for giving misleading information about the origin of the Benghazi terror attack. On Sept. 16, 2012, just days after the attack, Rice appeared on all five Sunday political talk shows to claim the Benghazi attack spun out of a protest over an anti-Muslim video produced in California.

Former CIA Director David Petraeus reportedly told lawmakers later that the intelligence community considered the attack an act of terrorism at the time. Four Americans were killed in Benghazi, including U.S. Ambassador to Libya Chris Stevens.

John Podesta in a frenzy converting $40B Clinton Foundation assets into gold, diamonds & artwork

Independent journalist George Webb says that after President Trump fired FBI director James Comey, longtime Democrat operative and Clinton loyalist John Podesta is in a frenzy to unload $40 billion from the Clinton Foundation — by buying up art, gold and diamonds, and spreading them out all over the world — before those assets are seized by a new FBI director.

John Podesta was the chair of Hillary’s failed 2016 presidential campaign. Before that, he was Counselor to the President in the Obama administration, and White House Chief of Staff in the Bill Clinton administration.

Beginning at the 0:30 mark in the video above, Webb says:

“Right now . . . John Podesta is buying up artwork between every Jewish art dealer.”

Webb is asked: “How do you know that?”

Webb answers:

“I have a contact within the French intelligence that’s told me that. So they’re buying up artwork right now in every, they know every art dealer that he’s buying art from . . . . What you’re dealing with is Trump could go get that 40 billion dollars right now and seize those assets. So before a new FBI director is named — [Acting FBI Director Andrew] McCabe knows all about the $40 billion — you start moving this stuff to gold, diamonds, artwork and so forth, and you put it in your network . . . out into as many different countries as possible, so it’ll be so difficult to actually go seize. You have a contractual issue or an international issue every time you try to get some of this stuff that’s been moved. The money right now is being moved by John Podesta to artwork, diamonds and gold.

As explained by Forbidden Knowledge TV‘s Alexandra Bruce:

“Webb sees the Seth Rich murder as just a small part of a much bigger picture of high-level racketeering by Hillary Clinton, her minions and whoever she’s fronting. It’s an outrageous amount of money that’s been amassed over some twenty years.”

Webb calls the Clintons’ racketeering, including drug running, the Clinton rat line.

Bruce continues:

“Webb then proceeds to . . . illustrate how the drug-running between Afghanistan and Punjab, to Pakistan, to Turkey’s Incirlik airbase to NATO, in Mons, Belgium.

Webb says, large military transport planes, like C-130s are used to transfer raw opium from Afghanistan to Pakistan, where they are refined into opioid medications, which are then contracted-out by mobbed-up doctors, to places like the VA (US Department of Veterans Affairs), where these generic drugs (usually watered-down to half- or quarter-strength) are distributed from Belgium.

He says information about all of the above can be found in the Congressional Blackberry phone network.

He describes these activities as, ‘Just Mena [Arkansas] Airport, on a global scale, just longer distances…It’s very simple: drugs go one way, arms go the other way….’ Half of the cargo gets left in Belgium and the rest comes to the US. In the past, he’s mentioned Offut Air Force Base in Nebraska, as well as an airport in Rockford, Illinois, where drugs were smuggled in shipments of mangoes and Basmati rice. Except that instead of the $1 million per day worth of cocaine being brought in at Mena, Webb claims, in an another one of his blizzard of micro-posts, that Offut AFB receives $1 billion per day (!) in opioids.”

Trump makes 180° reversal on WikiLeaks, now called ‘a hostile agent’ in collusion with Russia

Donald Trump owes WikiLeaks no small amount for his winning the 2016 presidential election.

Were it not for WikiLeaks‘ publishing of Democrat emails — those of Hillary Clinton, Democratic National Committee (DNC), and John Podesta — the voter would not have known the corrupt pay-to-play Clinton Foundation, Hillary’s illegal private email server, the DNC’s corruption and betrayal of Hillary’s primary rival Bernie Sanders, and the satanic practices of Podesta and Pizzagate.

Throughout, Trump had been supportive and never critical of WikiLeaks. As an example, on January 4, 2017, Trump tweeted this:

In a speech on October 10, 2016, Trump declared, “I love WikiLeaks!” (New York Times)

Before he became the Trump administration’s CIA director, Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-Kansas) similarly was approving of the WikiLeaks emails. On July 24, 2016, Pompeo tweeted this:

Then was then, now is now.

Then, Trump needed WikiLeaks. Now that he’s President, WikiLeaks has become “a hostile agent”.

Matthew Rosenberg reports for The New York Times that in his first speech as director of the CIA yesterday, April 13, 2017, Mike Pompeo attacked WikiLeaks as a stateless hostile intelligence unit eager to do the bidding of Russia and other U.S. adversaries. Pompeo said, “It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a nonstate hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.”

“It’s time to call out WikiLeaks for what it really is: a nonstate hostile intelligence service often abetted by state actors like Russia.” You would think we’re still in the Obama administration or a Hillary Clinton administration.

To support his assessment, Pompeo cited as evidence of WikiLeaks‘ hostile intent the latter’s release of Democratic Party emails — the exact same emails that Pompeo had promoted in July 2016, but now insists had been stolen by Russian hackers, although both WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and hacker Guccifer 2.0 maintain the leaker was a DNC staffer named Seth Rich, 27.

On early Sunday morning, July 10, 2016, Seth was shot dead in the streets of Washington, DC. His assassination remains unsolved.

Pompeo also cited how WikiLeaks encouraged followers to join the C.I.A. and steal secrets, and how “it overwhelmingly focuses on the United States while seeking support from antidemocratic countries.”

Pompeo’s harshest words were reserved for Assange, whom Pompeo calls a “narcissist,” “a fraud — a coward hiding behind a screen,” and a “false wizard”.

There goes our hope and expectation that a President Trump would commend Assange and provide him political asylum and a safe refuge in America.

The 180° reversal is because the Trump administration now finds itself on the receiving end of WikiLeaks disclosures. Last month, the group released thousands of pages of documents describing sophisticated software tools and techniques used by the C.I.A. to break into the American people’s smartphones, computers and even internet-connected televisions.

Miley Cyrus and Pizzagate

WARNING: Adult-theme images

We are familiar with Miley Cyrus’ obscene scantily-clad public displays: twerking, simulating masturbation, mounting a giant penis, licking a gigantic penis birthday cake, sitting with her legs splayed wide open, incessantly sticking out her tongue, mimicking the horned demon Krampus, and so on.

And then, of course, there’s this Vanity Fair picture of Billy Ray Cyrus with his then-teenage daughter Miley, looking more like lovers than father-and-daughter:

Some FOTM readers have suggested that Miley displays all the signs of having been sexually abused.

The other day, I accidentally stumbled across pizza-themed pics of herself that Miley had posted to Instagram. Now that Pizzagate has sensitized us to “pizza” as a pedophile code word for young girls, these pizza-themed pics of Miley take on new, sinister meaning.

On December 29, 2014, Miley posted on Instagram a picture of herself in a pizza hat and onesie:

Miley likes pizza so much she covered her bed with a sickening-looking pepperoni pizza bedspread (source):

Here’s Miley posing on the pizza bedspread, once again with her tongue sticking out:

Here she is making an obscene gesture with her tongue at her birthday cake shaped like a giant pizza:

Do you remember Miley posing with giant teddy bears? Here’s an account of Miley at the 2013 MTV Music Awards (Hollywood Reporter):

Miley Cyrus climbed out of a giant teddy bear, sticking her tongue out of the side of her mouth.

She then strutted around the stage, accompanied by dancers wearing giant teddy bears, performing her controversial single “We Can’t Stop.”

Sporting a furry bustier designed to match the teddy bear motif, the 20-year-old singer at one point grabbed the rear end of one of her dancers before bending over to shake her own behind at the audience.

I had found the teddy bear to be disquieting, although I did not know why.

Beginning in the early 1950s, the CIA conducted mind control experiments on human subjects in a program called Project MKUltra. The experiments were intended to identify and develop drugs and procedures to be used in interrogations and torture, in order to weaken the individual to force confessions through mind control. The program engaged in many illegal activities, including the use of unwitting U.S. and Canadian citizens as its test subjects, the manipulation of people’s mental states and brain functions via the surreptitious administration of drugs (especially LSD) and other chemicals, hypnosis, sensory deprivation, isolation, verbal and sexual abuse, as well as other forms of psychological torture.

Project MKUltra was officially halted in 1973 — or so they say.

According to Vigilant Citizen, “Young mind control victims are often given Teddy Bears by their handlers to make them develop an emotional attachment to them. This attachment is then exploited by the handlers to create emotional trauma.”

Now we know the significance of Miley Cyrus and those giant teddy bears.

While searching on the net for “pedo-bear,” I found that Cafe Press actually sells “Mk Ultra Teddy Bears”.

Sick.

Fake war hero: John McCain’s ‘Tokyo Rose’ recording

Son of a U.S. admiral, Senator John McCain (R-Arizona), 80, made his entire political career based on his reputation as a Vietnam war hero, incarcerated in a North Vietnamese prison camp for 5½ years until he was released on March 14, 1973. For that, McCain was awarded the Silver Star, Bronze Star, Purple Heart, Legion of Merit, Distinguished Flying Cross, and other commendations.

But there have been whispers and outright assertions by U.S. military veterans that McCain had sold out to the Viet Cong, ratted on his fellow inmates, and received preferential treatment.

Last August, TRUNews obtained a recording made by McCain in which he lauded his Viet Cong captors, well knowing his words would be used as propaganda. Indeed, McCain’s recording was broadcast on North Vietnamese radio in 1969.

The radio broadcast had never been heard in the United States. For that matter, no one even knew such a recording existed. But the broadcast was recorded by the Foreign Broadcast Information Service (FBIS), a branch of the CIA that monitored international shortwave and foreign radio broadcasts. Last year, the audio recording made by FBIS was found in a misplaced file in the National Archives in Washington, D.C.

TRUNEWS acquired the audio recording in cooperation with WeSearchR.com, a new media company founded by Charles Johnson.

Here’s the audio of John McCain’s “Tokyo Rose” propaganda message, followed by the transcript of what he said. (Note: Tokyo Rose was a fabricated name given by Allied troops in the South Pacific during World War II to all female English-speaking radio broadcasters of Japanese propaganda. The programs were broadcast in the South Pacific and North America to demoralize Allied troops abroad and their families at home by emphasizing troops’ wartime difficulties and military losses.)

Transcript:

To the Vietnamese people and the government of the DRVN (Democratic Republic of Vietnam):

From John Sidney McCain, 624787, Lieutenant Commander, U.S. Navy; born 29 August, 1936, Panama; home state Oregon. Shot down, 26 October, 1967, A-4E aircraft.

I, as a U. S. airman, am guilty of crimes against the Vietnamese country and people. I bombed their cities, towns and villages, and caused many injuries, even deaths, for the people of Vietnam.

I was captured in the capital city of Hanoi, while attacking it. After I was captured, I was taken to the hospital in Hanoi, where I received very good medical treatment. I was given an operation on my leg, which allowed me to walk again, and a cast on my right arm, which was badly broken in three places. The doctors were very good and they knew a great deal about the practice of medicine. I remained in the hospital for some time and regained much of my health and strength.

Since I arrived in the camp of detention, I have received humane and lenient treatment. I received this kind of treatment and food even though I came here as an aggressor and the people who I injured have much difficulty in their living standards.

I wish to express my deep gratitude for my kind treatment and I will never forget this kindness extended to me.

McCain’s fellow POWs (prisoners of war) have spoken out about him:

  • Dr. Phillip Butler, a former light-attack carrier pilot, wrote in Military.com that McCain made himself out to be “THE hero POW, which he knows is absolutely not true, to further his political goals,” because other POWs also were injured when shot down, tortured for longer periods, and awarded Silver Stars and Purple Hearts.
  • Other fellow POWs gave eye witness accounts of McCain’s traitorous actions during his time as a prisoner in Viet Nam:

In 2015, Donald Trump ignited a political firestorm when he said John McCain is not a war hero. It turns out that, once again, Trump is right!
