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.

ACCOUNTABILITY: President Trump Fires Deep State Snitch Who Triggered Impeachment Hysteria

Trump made the announcement to Congress on Friday.

Published

on

President Donald Trump is taking out the trash now that the impeachment witch hunt against him has subsided, and he has fired a deep state snitch instrumental in getting the impeachment proceedings off the ground.

Trump has fired Michael Atkinson, a Department of Justice attorney who served as the Intelligence Community Inspector General, after Atkinson notified Congress last year about the “whistleblower” complaint filed by CIA operative Eric Ciaramella. This prompted months of hysteria that ultimately found no evidence of Trump committing any wrongdoing.

“As is the case with regard to other positions where I, as President, have the power of appointment … it is vital that I have the fullest confidence in the appointees serving as inspectors general,” Trump wrote in his letter to Congress. “That is no longer the case with regard to this Inspector General.”

Leading Democrats are not happy about Trump cleaning house and removing deep state operatives from power.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is demanding that the President to “immediately cease his attacks on those who sacrifice to keep America safe, particularly during this time of national emergency.”

House Intelligence Chairman Adam Schiff (D-CA) said that the firing is “another blatant attempt by the President to gut the independence of the Intelligence Community and retaliate against those who dare to expose presidential wrongdoing.”

“This retribution against a distinguished public servant for doing his job and informing Congress of an urgent and credible whistleblower complaint is a direct affront to the entire inspector general system,” Schiff said in a statement.

“In the midst of a national emergency, it is unconscionable that the President is once again attempting to undermine the integrity of the intelligence community by firing yet another an intelligence official simply for doing his job,” said Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), the top ranking Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“When you speak truth to power, you should be a hero. But in this administration, when you speak truth to power, all too often, you get fired,” Schumer said during an appearance on CNN.

Republican lawmakers are generally pleased with the President’s decision to remove Atkinson.

“Like any political appointee, the Inspector General serves at the behest of the Executive. However, in order to be effective, the IG must be allowed to conduct his or her work independent of internal or external pressure,” said Sen. Richard Burr (R-KY), who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee.

“It is my hope the next nominee for the role of ICIG will uphold the same important standards laid out by Congress when we created this role,” he added.

“The intelligence community inspector general is particularly essential to ensuring the nation’s secrets are well protected and powerful, highly invasive surveillance authorities are not abused. Going forward the ICIG must step up its focus on investigating those abuses and preventing leaks of classified information,” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) said.

Trump is finally starting to drain the swamp by removing some of these career bureaucrats from position of authority in Washington D.C.
