James Mattis Beats War Drums, Pushes Trump to Take Military Action in Syria



President Donald J. Trump has a mole in his cabinet: United States Secretary of Defense James N. Mattis. He is currently and has been operating against the noninterventionist Trump agenda from day one.

“In a rare Pentagon press conference, James Mattis said a drawdown must wait for more diplomatic progress toward a United Nations-negotiated peace in Geneva that deposes Syria’s Bashar al-Assad,” according to a Defense One report from late August.

Less than two weeks later, Mattis has the White House considering military action following reports that Syrian President Assad has approved the use of chlorine gas to fight rebels in the city of Idlib.

“The White House has warned that the United States and its allies would respond ‘swiftly and vigorously’ if government forces used chemical weapons in Idlib,” according to a report.

But Trump and his war-weary supporters have vocally opposed continued war in the Middle East throughout his campaign and tenure in office.

All the while, Mattis has continued to push the narrative that Assad is a crazed maniac who is bent on murdering his own people, despite admitting that the Pentagon has no evidence to support that claim.

“I believe there was a chemical attack, and we’re looking for the actual evidence,” Mattis said of an alleged chemical attack in Douma, Syria in April. “If we get [the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons] in, if the regime will let them in, we will not know who did it. They can only say that they found evidence [of a chemical attack] or did not.”

That alleged attack drew a military response from Trump, who bombed Syria in an act of retaliation perhaps out of fear of looking sympathetic to Assads Russian-allied regime given the bogus Russian “collusion” narrative which is still being pushed by the mainstream press.

Mattis is a famous war-monger, hungry for blood in the Middle East.

“Be polite, be professional, but have a plan to kill everybody you meet,” he once said.

“You go into Afghanistan, you got guys who slap women around for five years because they didn’t wear a veil. You know, guys like that ain’t got no manhood left anyway. So it’s a hell of a lot of fun to shoot them. Actually it’s quite fun to fight them, you know. It’s a hell of a hoot. It’s fun to shoot some people. I’ll be right up there with you. I like brawling,” he said in 2005.

“The first time you blow someone away is not an insignificant event. That said, there are some assholes in the world that just need to be shot,” he also reportedly said.

This is not the foreign policy that Americans voted for, and as long as Mattis is running the Department of Defense, Trump supporters must be wary of more endless Middle Eastern conflict.

President Trump is ‘Terminating’ Relationship with Disgraced W.H.O., Punishing China for Hong Kong Takeover

Trump is striking back against the globalists.



President Donald Trump announced today that he will be “terminating” the relationship between the disgraced World Health Organization (WHO) and the U.S. as well as cutting off special trade advantages given to Hong Kong after China seized control of the formerly semi-autonomous city.

“We have detailed the reforms that it must make and engaged with them directly, but they have refused to act,” the president said from the White House. “Because they have failed to make the requested and greatly needed reforms, we will be today terminating the relationship.”

Trump claims that he will be “redirecting” the funds that previously went to the WHO toward “other worldwide and deserving urgent global public health needs.” He also said China “ignored” their obligations to the WHO when they spread disinformation to them about the nature of the coronavirus.

The WHO taking China at their word resulted in this embarrassing tweet that serves as an eternal reminder of the extreme incompetence of the globalist body:

Trump is also putting the squeeze on Hong Kong following China’s announcement that they will be taking additional power over the city that has rebelled against the red menace throughout the past year.

“I am directing my administration to begin the process of eliminating policy exemptions that give Hong Kong different and special treatment,” Trump said at the same press conference.

“My announcement today will affect the full range of agreements that we have with Hong Kong, from our extradition treaty, to our export controls and technologies,” Trump added. “We will take action to revoke Hong Kong’s preferential treatment as a separate customs and travel territory from the rest of China.”

“No reasonable person can assert today that Hong Kong maintains a high degree of autonomy from China, given facts on the ground,” Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said in a statement after delivering a report to Congress indicating that Hong Kong has been usurped by China.

The president also said he will instruct his “presidential working group on financial markets to study the different practices of Chinese companies listed on the U.S. financial markets, with a goal of protecting American investors.”

“Investment firms should not be subjecting their clients to the hidden and undue risks associated with financing Chinese companies that do not play by the same rules,” Trump said, adding that “Americans are entitled to fairness and transparency.”

President Trump is getting tough on China and the WHO now that the coronavirus pandemic has subsided a bit. He has not let the crisis distract him from his agenda of ending globalism and putting America first.
