Admittedly, watching liberals who cried over the war in the Middle East just a decade ago, cry now that President Donald J. Trump has taken steps to end the same war has been amusing.
But Daily Beast columnist Dean Obeidallah has gone full conspiracy theorist, claiming that Trump orchestrated the troop withdrawal from Syria with Russian president Vladimir Putin more than two years ago, before Trump was elected president.
“Was this part of your deal with Putin to help you win the 2016 election?” Obeidallah Tweeted in response to Trump’s announcement that he would be withdrawing troops from Syria.
After two years of investigation, there is still zero evidence that the Kremlin had anything to do with Trump’s election. But that is the narrative that the conspiracy loons in the mainstream press have chosen, and they are sticking with it.
“Message heard by your comrades in Moscow. Does this mean by pulling out troops as Putin wants you can finally build Trump Tower Moscow?” Obeidallah sad in another Tweet.
Obeidallah and Daily Beast are playing the “willful ignorance” card here, ignoring the fact that two things can be true at once: Removing troops from Syria can be good for the war-weary American people, and also good geopolitically for Russia. Benefit on behalf of both parties does not suggest an agreement – or a conspiracy.
But the Russian hoaxers are happy to take this decision at face value, attempting to turn it into proof of their insane “collusion” theory. Perhaps we are old fashioned at Big League Politics, but we are waiting for tangible evidence of some sort of crime before we indict Trump the alleged crime. Daily Beast, on the other hand, apparently does not have such stringent guidelines.
Daily Beast did not return a comment request.

Reuters Calls Louisville Riots Where Cops Were Shot by Black Lives Matter Terrorists ‘Mostly Peaceful’
After cops were shot in Louisville during widespread Black Lives Matter rioting on Wednesday night, Reuters had the audacity to claim that the demonstrations were “mostly peaceful.”
Demonstrations in Louisville wore on past nightfall in defiance of a 9 p.m. curfew and remained mostly peaceful until several gunshots rang out in the midst of a skirmish between protesters and heavily armed police https://t.co/lvEd2XalpJ pic.twitter.com/L8GrPNrwCg

In the Reuters article linked in the tweet, the shooting of the police officers was buried in the article. Instead, editors focused on the race of the cops who returned fire to Breonna Taylor’s boyfriend after he shot at them while they were carrying out a lawful warrant at his home.
“Two white policemen who fired into the apartment of Breonna Taylor, a Black medical worker, will not be prosecuted for her death because their use of force was justified, and a third was charged with endangering her neighbors, Kentucky’s attorney general said on Wednesday,” they wrote.
Reuters buried the lead, opting to demonize the “heavily armed police” who sent the “crowd scurrying for cover,” even though it was the Black Lives Matter/ANTIFA terrorists who shot the law enforcement officers.
Big League Politics reported on the decision by Kentucky officials to charge one of the three officers involved in the shooting death of Taylor:
On September 23, 2020, Jefferson County Judge Annie O’Connell announced that fired detective Brett Hankinson will be indicted on three counts of wanton endangerment for his actions on the night of Breonna Taylor’s death.
Hankison had previously admitted to shooting blindly. Some of those shots were fired into neighboring apartments not into Breonna Taylor’s where her boyfriend had opened fire onto police.
Myles Cosgrove and Jonathan Mattingly, the other two officers involved in a serving a search warrant on the night that Taylor was killed, did not receive any charges.
The city of Louisville was placed under a state of emergency on September 22, when city officials shutdown a significant portion of the city perimeter to traffic. The majority of administrative building and other businesses were boarded up prior to the decision. Louisville has been rocked by riots related to Taylor’s death in March. These riots have been occurring for over 100 days and have resulted in a number of deaths and heated confrontations with law enforcement.
Starting on the night of September 23, there will be a 72-hour curfew in Louisville. The curfew will not apply to people partaking in essential travel, which includes work-related purposes or medical attention. Kentucky National Guard members will be deployed to the city for the purpose of maintaining public order…
Conservatives and nationalists should make it a point to promote healthy debate, while establishing a baseline of public security, to ensure that the country does not spiral further out of control in such times of instability.
