Deep State Moves to Undermine Trump’s Planned Afghanistan Troop Withdrawal

Published

on

It has become abundantly clear in recent months that President Donald Trump is ready to bring the troops home. He understands that he was elected to be a peace President and is taking his mandate very seriously.

He made the following announcement during Christmas time last year:

Since making his peace proclamation, the deep state has been at work trying to undermine Trump’s progress so troops remain in place around the globe. For Afghanistan in particular, the US is involved there in a 17-year war that is the longest in the nation’s history. Trump has called for troops to come home from Afghanistan, but the Pentagon countered that with a plan of their own calling for troops to remain in the graveyard of empires for at least five more years.

The New York Times explains what the deep state is cooking up:

All American troops would withdraw from Afghanistan over the next three to five years under a new Pentagon plan being offered in peace negotiations that could lead to a government in Kabul that shares power with the Taliban.

The rest of the international force in Afghanistan would leave at the same time, after having mixed success in stabilizing the country since 2001. The plan is being discussed with European allies and was devised, in part, to appeal to President Trump, who has long expressed skepticism of enduring American roles in wars overseas.

The plan calls for cutting by half, in coming months, the 14,000 American troops currently in Afghanistan. It would task the 8,600 European and other international troops with training the Afghan military — a focus of the NATO mission for more than a decade — and largely shift American operations to counterterrorism strikes.

Just like what happened in Iraq, it appears the Pentagon is going to stage a phantom withdrawal where a phony peace will be announced, but the policies remain exactly the same. In the case of Iraq, Obama was given the credit by a complicit mainstream media for achieving the peace only to quietly put the troops back in Iraq years later. Lawmakers in the new Democratic Iraq are demanding troop withdrawal, and the US refuses to comply.

Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) has been in Trump’s corner throughout this process, trying to make sure that Trump understands that the deep state and Washington D.C. swamp are feeding him misinformation about various foreign threats including Afghanistan. He went off on his colleague Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) and other lawmakers for agitating on behalf of endless war.

Trump has certainly pledged to bring the troops home, but it is not an easy process. Entrenched institutional power will oppose him every step of the way. He will have to listen to voices like Paul and Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), who is leading on the issue of non-intervention in Yemen, and not the swamp in order to fulfill his ‘America First’ policy mandate.

Former U.S. Rep. Dana Rohrabacher CONFIRMS That He Floated Possible Presidential Pardon to Julian Assange

Trump’s alleged willingness to pardon Assange shows that he is still fighting the deep state.

Yesterday, an attorney for WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange said in court that his client was offered a presidential pardon in exchange for Russia testimony. Former Congressman Dana Rohrabacher has now essentially confirmed those allegations.

“I spoke to Julian Assange and told him if he would provide evidence about who gave WikiLeaks the emails, I would petition the president to give him a pardon,” Rohrabacher said to Yahoo News. “He knew I could get to the president.”

Rohrabacher had a three-hour meeting with Assange in August 2017 while he was holed up at the Ecuadorian Embassy in Britain. Rohrabacher was hoping to gather proof that Seth Rich, a former DNC staffer murdered in 2016 who many now put on the Clinton kill count, or another individual leaked the information to WikiLeaks. The deep state claims the Russians were behind it.

He made it clear that he only requested “truthful” information from Assange, and in no way meant to coerce him to produce a “lie.” Rohrabacher talked to former White House chief of staff John Kelly after the fact about the meeting, whom he said was “courteous” but ultimately brushed him off.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham, who worked for the First Lady when this took place, is vehemently denying the allegations.

“The President barely knows Dana Rohrabacher other than he’s an ex-congressman,” she said in a statement. “He’s never spoken to him on this subject or almost any subject. It is a complete fabrication and a total lie. This is probably another never ending hoax and total lie from the DNC.”

Right now, Assange is facing 18 felony charges, including 17 under the Espionage Act, for allegedly helping former Army intelligence analyst Chelsea Manning hack information exposing deep state crimes and other illicit activities in 2010.

“Chelsea Manning’s plea and mitigation to the military commission has key passages which we will be relying on so we would seek to extract that and key press reports so the court has key materials,” said Assange’s attorney Edward Fitzgerald, who is arguing that Britain should not extradite his client back to the United States, during a preliminary court appearance this week.

“What we say is it is an abuse to seek extradition for a political offense so that is really part of the abuse argument,” he added.

Assange has repeatedly said on the record that Russia did not give him the information that his organization leaked from the DNC.

“Hillary Clinton has stated multiple times, falsely, that 17 U.S. intelligence agencies had assessed that Russia was the source of our publications. That’s false. We can say that the Russian government is not the source,” Assange said in Nov. 2016 in an interview with an Australian broadcaster.

“Well, the reason is obvious. They’re trying to delegitimize the Trump administration as it goes into the White House. They are trying to say that President-elect Trump is not a legitimate President,” Assange told Sean Hannity during a Fox News interview, explaining the genesis of the Russia lie.

“We can say, we have said, repeatedly that over the last two months that our source is not the Russian government and it is not a state party,” Assange told Hannity.

A pardon of Assange would be a devastating blow to the deep state, which has been battling to overthrow President Trump since his election.
