Why Trump Is Absolutely Right To Get U.S. Troops Out Of Syria

In a surprising late-night statement (late for the U.K., anyway), last week the White House declared that American troops will move aside and let Turkey invade Syria. “Turkey will soon be moving forward with its long-planned operation into Northern Syria,” the statement said, adding, “The United States Armed Forces will not support or be involved in the operation, and United States forces, having defeated the ISIS territorial ‘Caliphate,’ will no longer be in the immediate area.”

The statement continued, “The United States Government has pressed France, Germany, and other European nations, from which many captured ISIS fighters came, to take them back, but they did not want them and refused. The United States will not hold them for what could be many years and great cost to the United States taxpayer.”

Even though I am a conservative foreign policy realist, my research deals with great powers and neorealism, and I regularly advocate restraint and retrenchment and amoral realpolitik in these pages, I never in my wildest dreams anticipated waking up to an actual realpolitik move from the White House.

Windsurfer Recalls How A Planned One-Hour Excursion Turned Into An Overnight Adventure

DEWEY BEACH – A longtime resort physician says he is lucky to be alive after a windsurfing trip last week left him stranded in a Delaware bay for hours.

Last Thursday evening, Victor Gong – an Ocean City emergency physician for 30 years – went windsurfing off Dewey Beach. But his hour-long excursion soon turned into an overnight adventure when the sail detached from the board, leaving him stranded in the Rehoboth Bay for roughly six hours before making it back to shore on the other side.

“I was planning to go out for an hour, launch at 6 and get in by 7 because it gets dark by 7:45,” he said. “I did a few runs coming back in, but coming back my sail dismantles from the board and I couldn’t surf back in.”

Gong noted he made several attempts to reach land in the hour that followed. When the current had prevented him from swimming to shore, he tried to reattach his sail, but to no avail.


Flynn lawyer wants cellphones from mysterious professor linked to Russia probe

The lawyer representing Michael Flynn in the case against the former national security adviser demanded federal prosecutors turn over two cellphones used by a shadowy professor whose role in the Trump-Russia investigation has long been shrouded in mystery.

Flynn’s attorney, Sidney Powell, filed a motion on Tuesday seeking the devices that belonged to Maltese Professor Joseph Mifsud, claiming that they contained imperative information to the defense of her client.

“This information is material, exculpatory, and relevant to the defense of Mr. Flynn,” Powell wrote in the court filing.

She claimed the phones could contain specific information related to Western intelligence being “tasked against [Flynn] likely as early as 2014 to arrange – unbeknownst to him – ‘connections’ with certain Russians that they would then use against him in their false claims.”


MORE CORRUPTION: Hunter Biden Was Also Put on the Amtrak Board – Democrats Argued, “He Spent a Lot of Time on Trains”

In June 2006 Hunter Biden was also put on the Amtrak Board.

Senator Thomas Carper form Delaware argued that Hunter spent a lot of time on trains and therefore makes an excellent candidate.

Hunter Biden was voted on to the Amtrak board.

In the first half of 2006 Hunter Biden’s lobbyist firm made $1.76 million in lobbying revenue in the first half of 2006.

Anti-Trump Rep. Schiff’s Secret Impeachment Hearings Are a Witch Hunt in a Fantasyland

“Rep. Adam Schiff, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and the leftists who are attacking President Trump – and by extension everyone who voted for and supports him – have managed to sink to a new low. On the scale of credibility, they are a minus-10. If they yelled fire, you would stay seated,” Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) writes for Fox News.

So far, according to Rep. Biggs, Rep. Schiff or members of his staff have:
  • Held impeachment hearings behind closed doors
  • Met with the “whistleblower” before a complaint was filed
  • Not followed the rules of the House of Representatives
  • Excluded some members of the House from sitting in on proceedings
  • Now said that the whistleblower will not even be called to testify
You can’t make it up: “Schiff excuses his misconduct, claiming Republicans will attempt to manipulate the narrative if his impeachment inquiry hearings were public.”

Attorney General Frosh Joins Coalition Defending Vermont’s Right to Ban Large-Capacity Magazines

Attorneys General Argue That Right to Bear Arms Allows States to Adopt Gun Safety Laws

BALTIMORE, MD (October 15, 2019) – Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh today joined a group of 18 state attorneys general to defend Vermont’s right to ban large-capacity magazines and protect public safety.  In an amicus brief filed in the Vermont Supreme Court, the attorneys general argue that states have the right to enact reasonable firearm restrictions that reduce the number of deaths and injuries caused by gun violence.

“Large-capacity magazines have one purpose—to kill as many people as possible, in the shortest amount of time, with the least amount of effort by the shooter,” said Attorney General Frosh.  “Restricting or banning these types of magazines is a common-sense approach to curbing this violence and, as federal courts have found over and over, does not violate the Constitution.”

The states have filed an amicus brief in State of Vermont v. Max B. Misch, in which the Vermont Supreme Court will determine whether Vermont’s prohibition on large-capacity magazines violates the Vermont Constitution’s right to bear arms.  In 2018, Vermont prohibited the manufacture, importation, possession, and sale of large-capacity magazines, with some exceptions, including for magazines lawfully possessed before the law went into effect.  The law bans magazines that hold more than 10 rounds of ammunition for long guns and more than 15 rounds for handguns.  Eight other states—including Maryland—and the District of Columbia have enacted similar prohibitions.  The constitutionality of those laws has been consistently upheld by federal courts of appeals under the Second Amendment of the U.S. Constitution, which the U.S. Supreme Court has recognized as “analogous” to Vermont’s right-to-bear-arms provision.

In the brief, the states argue that a ban on large-capacity magazines is a reasonable restriction that Vermont has the right to adopt because:

  • The right to bear arms does not prevent states from enacting common-sense gun safety measures: The brief explains that states are entitled to adopt reasonable restrictions on firearms to address the unique conditions within their borders and protect public safety.  Restricting access to large-capacity magazines is a reasonable restriction because it would reduce firearm injuries and deaths while leaving many other options open for individuals who wish to exercise their right to self-defense. 
  • States have a responsibility to prevent gun violence and protect public safety: The brief notes that states have primary responsibility for ensuring public safety.  This includes a duty to reduce the likelihood that their citizens will fall victim to preventable firearm violence, and to minimize fatalities and injuries when that violence does occur.  The brief notes that because there are local and regional differences that contribute to gun violence, deciding how best to protect the safety of state residents is a question better suited to legislatures than courts.
  • Regulating large-capacity magazines protects the public: The brief cites evidence that large-capacity magazines are especially attractive to mass shooters and criminals, posing increased risks to innocent civilians and law enforcement.  Restricting large-capacity magazines means a mass shooter must reload or switch weapons, giving bystanders more opportunities to flee, take shelter, or intervene.  At the same time, there is no proof that large-capacity magazines are necessary—or even commonly used—for self-defense.
In addition to Maryland, the brief was filed by the attorneys general of California, Connecticut, Delaware, the District of Columbia, Hawaii, Illinois, Massachusetts, Michigan, Minnesota, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Virginia, and Washington.

Frederick Douglass: From Slave to Statesman

Harris Supports Censure of Chairman Schiff

WASHINGTON, DC: Rep. Andy Harris, M.D. (MD-01) is a cosponsor of a resolution (H. Res. 630) to censure Rep. Adam Schiff, Chairman of the Select Committee on Intelligence. Chairman Schiff is pursuing an impeachment strategy and taking testimony in closed-door sessions that are not open to the public. Even Members of Congress not on the designated committees are barred from being present at the hearings or even reviewing the transcript or testimony of Committee proceedings.

Rep. Andy Harris made the following statement:

“Constituents in the three town hall meetings I held this week want to know if any evidence at all exists for impeachment. I came to Washington to find out, and was surprised to learn that not all Members of Congress are allowed to attend the hearings, or even to access the testimony and transcripts of these secret impeachment proceedings. Holding these hearings behind closed doors, at the insistence of Chairman Schiff, is unacceptable. Soviet-style secret trials should never be acceptable in America. There is no reason not to have full transparency unless something is being hidden. That is why I support the resolution to censure Rep. Schiff. Impeachment proceedings must be a fair and open process. Every American deserves a fair shake. As far as I can tell, there is no evidence that justifies distracting Congress from important issues of concern to the public, like reducing the high cost of prescription drugs, solving the opioid crisis, securing the border, and keeping the economy strong.”

Pelosi Informs Democrat Caucus There Will NOT be Formal Floor Vote to Launch Impeachment Probe – It’s a Scam!

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) confirmed to her Democrat Caucus on Tuesday that there will be no formal floor vote to officially launch an impeachment probe against President Trump.

Fox News Congress reporter Chad Pergram and Congress writer for The Hill Scott Wong both confirmed Pelosi has no plans to hold a full House vote.

Rather, Pelosi and her fellow Democrat coup plotters are moving full steam ahead with secret impeachment proceedings ‘to keep President Trump and his lawyers in the dark,’ as Adam Schiff previously stated.

Donald Trump Jr. slaps at Hunter Biden who dubbed him 'Prince Humperdinck'

Donald Trump Jr. ridiculed Hunter Biden on Tuesday for conceding that nepotism played an outsize role in his financial success, calling a TV interview with former vice president Joe Biden's son a 'dumpster fire.'

The younger Biden had branded Don Jr. 'Prince Humperdinck,' a nod to the cowardly, feckless and buffoonish character in the 1987 cult-classic film 'The Princess Bride.'

The Biden scion acknowledged in an ABC News interview that 'a lot of things' in his life would not have happened without his family name.

And he said it would have been 'impossible for me' to sit on boards of directors of companies and nonprofits if his father hadn't been a powerful elected official.

Hunter has also reaped unlikely windfalls at a Ukraine energy company and as a beneficiary of a $1.5 billion Chinese capital investment in a fund he partly owns.

Don Jr., the president's eldest son, smelled blood.

8)Dress in layers . . . it can be very chilly in the morning, and hopefully warmer and comfortable by the time we get there. Check the weather forecast for D.C. Also, wear shoes that are comfortable to walk and stand in.

9)We have contacted the rally organizers for an 'itinerary'. We'll share it with you when on the bus. But be advised, we are aiming to get back to West OC by 5:30, so we'll let the bus driver make the call as to what time we should be back on the bus.

10)When we arrive back at 'The Alamo' many of us plan on socializing at Caribbean Joe's, which is on-premises. It is five buck burger night, and we will be arriving there by 5:30 - - dinner time - - so join us. We'll pull some tables together as we treat ourselves to half pound burgers and refreshments.

Trump & The Kurds ... A Betrayal or A Hard Choice?


I am an occupational therapist with years of experience working with children, parents, and teachers. I completely agree with this teacher’s message that our children are getting worse and worse in many aspects.

I hear the same consistent message from every teacher I meet. Clearly, throughout my time as an Occupational Therapist, I have seen and continue to see a decline in children’s social, emotional, and academic functioning, as well as a sharp increase in learning disabilities and other diagnoses.

As we know, the brain is malleable. Through environment, we can make the brain “stronger” or make it “weaker”. I truly believe that, despite all our greatest intentions, we unfortunately remold our children’s brains in the wrong direction.

Here is why:


“I am Hungry!!” “In a sec I will stop at the drive thru” “I am Thirsty!” “Here is a vending machine.” “I am bored!” “Use my phone!” The ability to delay gratification is one of the key factors for future success. We have the best intentions — to make our child happy — but unfortunately, we make them happy at the moment but miserable in the long term. To be able to delay gratification means to be able to function under stress. Our children are gradually becoming less equipped to deal with even minor stressors, which eventually become huge obstacles to their success in life.

The inability to delay gratification is often seen in classrooms, malls, restaurants, and toy stores. The moment the child hears “No”, they react with belligerence because parents have taught their child’s brain to get what it wants right away.


Two Indiana judges were SHOT after their female colleague flipped the bird at two men

A female judge gave the middle finger to two men outside an Indiana White Castle during a night of bar-hopping before two of her male colleagues were shot, court records show.

Judicial officials filed disciplinary charges Friday against judges Andrew Adams and Bradley Jacobs of Clark County and Sabrina Bell of Crawford County over the May 1 altercation.

Court records indicate the altercation began after one of two men in a SUV yelled something at the judges, and Bell extended a middle finger at the two.

A fight then broke and Adams and Jacobs were shot. The altercation occurred about 3 a.m. on the opening day of a conference the judges were in Indianapolis to attend.


This Fort Worth PD Incident Got Me HEATED

Schiff's Democrats plot a secret impeachment, with leaks

The ejection of Rep. Matt Gaetz from House Intelligence Committee chairman Adam Schiff's witness testimony hearings for the Democrats' impeachment inquiry, as J.R. Dunn noted here, was pretty outrageous, given the right Gaetz had to be there as a member of the House Judiciary Committee and do nothing but listen. He wasn't some Code Pinko type disrupting the closed-door affair by yelling obscenities and hurling bags of urine. He was ejected because he was a Republican.

It kind of tells you about the "fairness" of this entire inquiry.

Now the Washington Post is reporting that having done that, Democrats have now gotten into a huddle, whispering together behind closed doors like Renaissance plotters, the better to accelerate the impeachment of President Trump. Presumably, they want to get it out of the way before the next election, which of course would be to serve their own political purposes. Those, of course, are what this whole lunacy is really about — removing Trump and not having to face the wrath of the American voters.


Beltway sniper Lee Boyd Malvo to argue before Supreme Court for new sentence

It was 17 years ago, Tuesday, that then-17-year-old Lee Boyd Malvo looked across U.S. Route 50 in Falls Church, Virginia, and gave the “go” signal.

John Allen Muhammad then pulled the trigger of a rifle from the trunk of his Chevrolet Caprice.

Lawyers for the younger Capital Beltway sniper Malvo — convicted in the shootings that left 10 strangers dead in a 2002 spree spanning three weeks — will argue before the U.S. Supreme Court Wednesday that he should be resentenced for his crimes.

Malvo was 17 in 2002, when he and Muhammad killed 10 people in Virginia, Maryland and the D.C.



Police in Martha’s Vineyard used red flag laws to seize the guns of an 84-year-old Korean War veteran over a comment the man made to a friend at a local diner.

Stephen Nichols was meeting with Edgartown resident Andy Marcus at Linda Jean’s diner in Oak Bluffs a couple of weeks ago when he mentioned that Tisbury School resource officer Scott Ogden often leaves his post as kids arrive to drink coffee at Xtra Mart, according to the Martha’s Vineyard Times.

Nichols, who works as the school’s crossing guard, told his friend someone could “shoot up the school” in Ogden’s absence and criticized the officer for “leaving his post.” Those comments apparently unnerved a waitress at Linda Jean’s, who contacted the police to tattle on the elderly U.S. Army veteran.


Pelosi Punts On Official Impeachment Vote, Robbing GOP Of Subpoena Power

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi announced on Tuesday that there would be no vote to launch formal impeachment proceedings against President Trump for the time being.
"There's no requirement that we have a vote, and so at this time we will not be having a vote," Pelosi said.

"We're not here to call bluffs -- we're here to find the truth, to uphold the Constitution of the United States. This is not a game for us. This is deadly serious," said Pelosi after discussing with the House Democratic caucus.
A formal vote would allow Republicans to subpoena their own documents and witnesses, something the minority party was allowed in both the Nixon and Clinton impeachment inquiry resolutions - which is why the Trump administration won't cooperate until a vote is held.

Taibbi: Impeaching Trump Would Establish ‘Intelligence Community Veto over Elections’

Rolling Stone contributing editor Matt Taibbi reframes the House Democrats’ impeachment inquiry — and its latest development in the arrest of two associates of Rudy Giuliani — as a “permanent coup” against President Trump playing out more slowly than coups he has experienced firsthand in other nations.

Taibbi’s article comes after he criticized corporate media’s framing of the Deep Stater as a non-partisan “whistleblower,” despite being a registered Democrat who worked with former Vice President Joe Biden in the White House.

From Taibbi’s newsletter:
The men who are the proxies for Donald Trump and Rudy Giuliani in this story are asserting that “official channels” have been corrupted. The forces backing impeachment, meanwhile, are telling us those same defendants are obstructing a lawful impeachment inquiry.


Judicial Watch is investigating if prominent conservative figures, journalists and persons with ties to President Donald Trump were unlawfully monitored by the State Department in Ukraine at the request of ousted U.S. Ambassador Marie Yovanovitch, an Obama appointee. Yovanovitch testified “in secret” to the House impeachment inquiry against Trump on Friday, October 11, 2019. Her “secret” testimony was leaked to the New York Times during the hearing.

Judicial Watch has obtained information indicating Yovanovitch may have violated laws and government regulations by ordering subordinates to target certain U.S. persons using State Department resources. Yovanovitch reportedly ordered monitoring keyed to the following search terms: Biden, Giuliani, Soros and Yovanovitch. Judicial Watch has filed a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request with the State Department and will continue gathering facts from government sources.

Prior to being recalled as ambassador to Ukraine in the spring Yovanovitch reportedly created a list of individuals who were to be monitored via social media and other means. Ukraine embassy staff made the request to the Washington D.C. headquarters office of the department’s Bureau of European and Eurasian Affairs. After several days, Yovanovitch’s staff was informed that the request was illegal and the monitoring either ceased or was concealed via the State Department Global Engagement Center, which has looser restrictions on collecting information.


'Hong Kong lives also matter': Freedom protesters trample and burn LeBron James jerseys

A crowd of Hong Kong freedom protesters took to the streets to burn LeBron James jerseys after he said Houston Rockets general manager Daryl Morey "wasn't educated" in his support of them.

"People are angry," James Lo, a NBA fan in Hong Kong, told the Associated Press on Tuesday. Lo was part of a group of around 200 people who chanted profanities about James while they trampled and lit several of his jerseys on fire.

"Students, they come out like every weekend. They’ve got tear gassed and then they got gun-shot, like every weekend. Police beating students and then innocent people, like every day. And then he (James) just comes up with something (like) that. We just can’t accept that," Lo added.


Poll Shows Elizabeth Warren Pulling Ahead in Early States

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) has extended her lead in early primary and caucus states, the latest YouGovUS/CBS News poll reveals.

YouGov conducted the survey for CBS News October 3 – October 9, 2019, polling 16,500 registered voters (7,958 Democrats and Democrat-leaning voters) in 18 early states. Of those surveyed, 31 percent named Warren as their Democrat nominee of choice. Joe Biden (D) came in second place with 25 percent support, followed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) with 17 percent support. The results demonstrate a five-point gain for Warren, who had 26 percent to Biden’s 25 percent in the YouGovUS/CBS News poll taken August 28 – September 4, 2019.

The remaining candidates fell below the well-established top tier. The survey shows Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA) down by double digits, with seven percent support. Mayor Pete Buttigieg (D) came in fifth place with five percent support, and former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke (D) came in right behind with four percent support. The remaining candidates saw one percent support or less. The margin of error is +/- 1.6 percent:


March for Life debuts 'Pro-Woman' theme for anti-abortion rally

The anti-abortion group March for Life will aim to turn abortion-rights messaging on its head with its theme for 2020.

Its theme, unveiled Tuesday, is "Life Empowers: Pro-Life is Pro-Woman." The slogan is a response to supporters of abortion rights, who deride groups like March for Life as being "anti-woman," and who use the "pro-woman" mantle to advocate for legal abortion.

"Ending the life of an innocent human being is being promoted as an essential to women's freedom, to women's empowerment, and to women's progress. To that we say, 'No,'" Jeanne Mancini, March for Life president, said at a press conference Tuesday.


Another Brutal Gang Slaying In Sanctuary City Seattle, Yet Police Still Won’t Work With ICE

Another person has been murdered in the Seattle area due to gang violence committed by illegal immigrants, yet the city still refuses to cooperate with Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

Carlos Orlando Iraheta-Vega, a member of the MS-13 gang, was arrested and accused of the brutal slaying of his teenage friend, Juan Carlos Con Guzman. Iraheta-Vega, who entered the country illegally, is accused of bashing Guzman to death with a baseball bat, and then working with another gang member to chop the body into pieces using a machete. One of Guzman’s arms and legs had been severed. Marks on his neck suggested the perpetrators attempted to cut his head off.

The Washington Times reported that Iraheta-Vega, 20, “admitted to the killing, saying he’d arranged to fight Juan Carlos but somewhere along the way he and a fellow MS-13 confederate, nicknamed ‘Inferno,’ decided to kill him instead.”

The Times also reported that Iraheta-Vega would have been deported about a year ago had Seattle cooperated with ICE at the time.


JW Suspicions Confirmed, Jihadists Are Entering U.S. through Mexico

Islamic terrorist infiltration along our Nation’s southern border is a very real threat, and it’s an issue which Judicial Watch has reported on closely in recent years. This week, our suspicions of Islamic terrorist infiltration have been confirmed once again by the story of Abdulahi Hasan Sharif, a Somali ISIS terrorist who escaped deportation after entering the United States illegally. Read the Federalist’s coverage of this disturbing series of events and how Judicial Watch has reported on this growing threat throughout the years.

From The Federalist: The First Illegal Border-Crossing Terrorist Is On Trial, But Don’t Expect The Media To Cover It

“Many who have professionally worried, as did former Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, that violent jihadists might illegally cross the United States’ southern border are often sanctimoniously challenged with this: “Name a single U.S. border-crossing immigrant asylum-seeker who ever committed a terrorist attack.”

Introducing Abdulahi Hasan Sharif of Somalia.

Kamala Harris says ‘women will die’ without pro-abortion laws. What about babies?

Pro-abortion advocates have been pushing for Democrats to bring up abortion at the presidential debates, which have primarily focused on issues such as immigration, affordable healthcare, and now impeachment.

So, to cash in on the fourth-wave feminist vacuum left by the loss of Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Sen. Kamala Harris used a question about healthcare in Tuesday’s debate to plug abortion legislation.

"This is the sixth debate we have had in this presidential cycle, and not nearly one word with all of these discussions about healthcare on women’s access to reproductive health care, which is under full-on attack in America today," the California senator said. "It's outrageous."
