Neocons are Rejoicing at Trump Keeping Troops in Syria

Published

on

America First took a blow yesterday after President Trump wrote to members of Congress that he now agrees “100%” in keeping a military presence in Syria.

A group of Senators and Representatives from both parties lauded Trump’s decision to keep a small contingent of troops in Syria.

The group wrote, “We support a small American stabilizing force in Syria” and they added that a force “which includes a small contingent of American troops and ground forces from our European allies, is essential to ensure stability and prevent the return of ISIS.”

NBC News obtained a copy of this letter, which had a paragraph that Trump highlighted. This paragraph said, “Like you, we seek to ensure that all of the gains made in Syria are not lost, that ISIS never returns, that Iran is not emboldened, and that we consolidate our gains and ensure the best outcome in Geneva for American interests.”

Trump responded to this paragraph by writing directly on the letter and signing it:

“I agree 100%. ALL is being done.”

Running on a platform of a restrained foreign policy, Trump vowed to end the fight against ISIS, highlighting the steep cost to the U.S. both in terms of lives and money lost. On December 19, 2018, Trump posted a video message saying “Our boys, our young women, our men, they’re all coming back and they’re coming back now. We won.”

Unfortunately, the Military-Industrial Complex and its Deep State pals have other plans in mind.

Since neocons in the Senate blocked Trump’s withdrawal proposal, the Trump administration has slightly wavered on the issue of withdrawing troops from foreign entanglements in Afghanistan and Syria.

Nevertheless, Trump can still reverse course and re-assert his power as Commander-in-chief by telling Congress to pound sand and carry out full withdrawals anyways.

On foreign policy matters concerning troop withdrawals, the buck stops with Trump. Trump was elected on a platform putting America first and he should remind our do-nothing Congress that’s he ultimately in charge.

Texas Political Establishment Attempts to Derail Shelley Luther’s Campaign

Published

on

The special election for Texas’ Senate District 30 is on pace to be one of the most heated races in the Lone Star State.

At a candidate forum on September 18, 2020, Shelley Luther, the Dallas salon owner who was jailed for opening her business in defiance of Governor Greg Abbott’s shutdown order, confronted outgoing State Senator Pat Fallon.

Fallon vacated his seat and is now backing a successor in State Representative Drew Springer.

“We don’t want somebody who’s going to be at odds with our Republican governor,” Fallon said September 18 at the Grayson County Republican Women’s Club.

Fallon added:

I didn’t support some of the things that he has done about opening up. … So, he’s made some mistakes. He’s our Republican governor, the 80/20 rule … because you’re not going to get any bills passed unless the governor signs them.

“Let me make something clear. I am accountable to my fellow citizens in Senate District 30. Not our Governor,” Luther responded on September 19 on Facebook:

This is exactly what is wrong with Austin. Our politicians are more loyal to Abbott than us, even when they disagree with him.

I will work with Governor Abbott when he is fighting to protect the liberty of Texans, and I will oppose him when he pushes unilateral dictates that shut down our local businesses.

Fallon and Luther had a tense exchange, which was caught on video.

“You want me to go all in on this race?” Fallon questioned Luther. “I have been 5 percent in on this race. You want me to go all in on it, I’m welcome to.”

“This has become a straight-up fight between Abbott and the ‘Kumbaya’ Professional Political Class vs. the grassroots and people who remember what limited government and principles should look like,” opined conservative activist Mike Openshaw.

“Respectfully, being willing to be jailed for fighting over-reaching government shows principle; that counts for something, Patrick,” Openshaw continued.

Luther has recently received endorsements from conservative Collin County Judge Chris Hill and Young Conservatives of Texas. Springer, on the other hand, received an endorsement from the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, which asserted that Luther was going down a “far right” path.

A Republican is expected to carry the senate district, which may still require a runoff if the leading candidate does not get enough votes during the first round of the special election.

Election Day will be on September 29.

Luther is viewed as the truly conservative option and many believe she could help break the political status quo in Austin that has kept conservative legislation from ever being passed.
