President Donald Trump was chastised by the mainstream media for declaring peace in Syria, claiming the ISIS threat is finished, and announcing that troops would come home late last year.

Although Trump’s signature hyperbole may have overstated the progress made against ISIS, the Islamic threat is clearly on the run. A US-backed Kurdish force is closer than ever to repelling ISIS out of Syria completely after achieving a massive victory resulting in the surrender of 200 militants.
Çiyager Amed, a Syrian Democratic Forces official, confirmed to the Associated Press that ISIS fighters who were holed up in Baghouz surrendered last week. Baghouz is the last remaining ISIS stronghold in all of Syria consisting of mostly foreigners including Iraqis with very few civilians remaining in the city.
Mustafa Bali, a spokesman for the SDF, announced that hundreds of women and children left the ISIS enclave into safety, but the threat is not eradicated quite yet. Although the remaining ISIS fighters are few, their elite fighters remain, and they are more than willing to take human shields to maintain what little power they have left.
“They also don’t have other options. Either to surrender or die,” Bali said of ISIS fighters. He maintains that women and children who surrender, even if they are family to ISIS members, will be treated as civilians.
Omar Abu Laila, the administrator of the DeirEzzor 24 group that tracks ongoing fighting in the tumultuous eastern province of Deir el-Zour, confirms the SDF’s reports.
“The battle is almost over in eastern Syria with SDF fighters almost in full control of the last pocket held by Daesh,” Abu Laila said.
ISIS is being decimated so quickly that there is a growing question of what to do with war prisoners. According to AP sources, tent cities are expected to host these individuals while a permanent solution is found. Iraq is expected to take up to 20,000 of these militants, where it is feared that they could resume their hostile barbaric activities against the West.
There is another possible option to house ISIS terrorists: Guantanamo Bay. A U.S. State Department official maintains that although these militants can be detained at the facility as long as it is “lawful and appropriate,” it nevertheless remains an “option of last resort.”
While Trump’s comments regarding the progress made in Syria with ISIS may have been slightly exaggerated, it is still an incredible achievement to be celebrated considering Trump’s predecessor claimed that defeating ISIS would be a generational battle.
“This broader challenge of countering violent extremism is not simply a military effort. “Ideologies are not defeated by guns. They’re defeated with better ideas – a more attractive and more compelling vision,” former President Barack Hussein Obama said during an address at the Pentagon regarding ISIS in 2015.
“This larger battle for hearts and minds is going to be a generational struggle,” Obama added. “It’s ultimately not going to be won or lost by the United States alone. It will be decided by the countries and communities that terrorists like [the Islamic State] target.”
Turns out defeating ISIS wasn’t a generational struggle about winning hearts and minds, but rather a real war where the enemy can be crushed in battle. Trump stopped Obama’s deep state policies of arming Islamic terrorist rebels in Syria, which allowed ISIS to be crushed and Syria to be stabilized almost immediately. Trump is right to celebrate achievements that the biased fake news media will not even acknowledge.
If anybody but Donald Trump did what I did in Syria, which was an ISIS loaded mess when I became President, they would be a national hero. ISIS is mostly gone, we’re slowly sending our troops back home to be with their families, while at the same time fighting ISIS remnants……

Starting the long overdue pullout from Syria while hitting the little remaining ISIS territorial caliphate hard, and from many directions. Will attack again from existing nearby base if it reforms. Will devastate Turkey economically if they hit Kurds. Create 20 mile safe zone….

Trump is on the cusp of showing how a measured pull-out of troops in the Middle East can actually work. He just needs to keep tuning out the deep state, mainstream media, and other haters in order to complete this shift toward a truly ‘America First’ foreign policy.
Biden White House Will ‘Start Acting Now’ on Slavery Reparations Without Congressional Approval
Enshrining the new leftist caste system.
The Biden White House has announced that they will “start acting now” on reparations for slavery regardless of what goes on in Congress.
“We don’t want to wait on a study. We’re going to start acting now,” Senior White House adviser Cedric Richmond said during a recent interview with Axios.
“We have to start breaking down systemic racism and barriers that have held people of color back and especially African-Americans,” he added.
Richmond believes that House Resolution 40, a measure introduced in the legislature to study reparations, will eventually pass, but he maintains that the administration will move on the issue regardless of what the facts or logic of the matter dictate.
“We have to do stuff now to improve the plight, status, future, and empowerment of Black people all around the country,” Richmond said.
Richmond is building on the case made by White House press secretary Jen Psaki, who has affirmed the Biden administration’s support of the reparations study.
“He certainly would support a study of reparations,” Psaki said. “He understands we don’t need a study to take action right now on systemic racism, so he wants to take actions within his own government in the meantime.”
Biden is already taking measures to give additional handouts to certain minority constituents. He took executive action shortly after being installed as president that compelled the Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) “to redress racially discriminatory federal housing policies that have contributed to wealth inequality.”
Richmond confirmed that the Biden administration will be conferring additional government-granted privileges to minorities, particularly when it comes to educational opportunity.
“If you start talking about free college tuition to HBCUs [Historically Black Colleges and Universities] and you start talking about free community college in Title I and all of those things, I think that you are well on your way. Those are doable,” he said.
Big League Politics has reported on Biden’s embrace of Black Lives Matter radicalism as part of his devil’s bargain to seize power:
The terrorist group Black Lives Matter (BLM) uses the same digital fundraising platform, ActBlue, that is used by former vice president Joe Biden and many prominent political figures in the Democrat Party, the National Pulse has discovered.
“We appreciate your support of the movement and our ongoing fight to end state-sanctioned violence, liberate Black people, and end white supremacy forever,” the donation tab on the BLM official website states, which is rerouted to ActBlue.
The donation page notes that “ActBlue Charities is a registered charitable organization formed to democratize charitable giving” and any “contribution is made from my own funds or the funds of an authorizing corporation or other entity, and the funds are not being provided by any other person or entity.”
Biden’s presidential campaign has received a stunning $119,253,857 from the ActBlue platform, which sustains his presidential ambitions as well as the BLM terror movement.
Biden is living up to his mandate to enact an aggressive and corrosive form of identity politics. As the demographic collapse of the historical American nation continues, a new anti-white caste system of sorts will continue to take shape.
