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.
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
