A poll shows that 49% of Americans supported President Trump’s Syria withdrawal, while 33% opposed it in favor of ongoing war. The poll showed that the vast majority, 76%, of Republican and Independent voters want to end the wars while 14% of Republicans and Independents want to remain. In stark contrast, only 26% of Democrats supported peace by removing US troops, yet an overwhelming 59% of Democrats favored continuing the wars in the Middle East! In the past, Democratic voters have wildly shifted their “beliefs” based on the party affiliation of the president: during the Bush-Cheney years, liberals denounced war-on-terror tactics, such as assassinations, drones, and Guantanamo torture as moral atrocities. When Obama was elected, however, they completely changed their position – [proving once again that political rhetoric (in both parties) is primarily a tool to win votes and has little to do with morality or patriotism or upholding the Constitution. Too bad voters keep falling for the same tactics election after election.] -GEG
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP’S December 18 announcement that he intends to withdraw all U.S. troops from Syria produced some isolated support in the anti-war wings of bothparties, but largely provoked bipartisan outrage among in Washington’s reflexively pro-war establishment.
Both GOP Sen. Lindsey Graham, one of the country’s most reliable war supporters, and Hillary Clinton, who repeatedly criticized former President Barack Obama for insufficient hawkishness, condemned Trump’s decision in very similar terms, invoking standard war on terror jargon.
But while official Washington united in opposition, new polling data from Morning Consult/Politico shows that a large plurality of Americans support Trump’s Syria withdrawal announcement: 49 percent support to 33 percent opposition.
That’s not surprising given that Americans by a similarly large plurality agree with the proposition that “the U.S. has been engaged in too many military conflicts in places such as Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan for too long and should prioritize getting Americans out of harm’s way” far more than they agree with the pro-war view that “the U.S. needs to keep troops in places such as Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan to help support our allies fight terrorism and maintain our foreign policy interests in the region.”
But what is remarkable about the new polling data on Syria is that the vast bulk of support for keeping troops there comes from Democratic Party voters, while Republicans and independents overwhelming favor their removal. The numbers are stark: Of people who voted for Clinton in 2016, only 26 percent support withdrawing troops from Syria, while 59 percent oppose it. Trump voters overwhelmingly support withdraw by 76 percent to 14 percent.
A similar gap is seen among those who voted Democrat in the 2018 midterm elections (28 percent support withdrawal while 54 percent oppose it), as opposed to the widespread support for withdrawal among 2018 GOP voters: 74 percent to 18 percent.
Robert Mueller suggested to Congress that they have a potential obstruction case, which creates an opening for Congress to Impeach the President anyway. The burden may now be on the President to prove he is innocent.
Thai authorities filed a complaint accusing the couple of breaching a section of the country’s criminal code that relates to threatening the sovereignty of a state, and erosion of a state’s independence – these charges carry a death penalty!
According to a poll recorded in 2016, a stunning 67% of Republican voters thought mass immigration was a critical threat, but only 16% of GOP leaders agreed that it was a serious problem. Politicians serve their donors instead of their constituents, which has led to bad US immigration policies and open borders.
The health department has not disclosed the number of people who contracted measles post-vaccination. One doctor cited in the lawsuit argues the current Brooklyn measles cases are not “a clear and present danger to the public health” sufficient to require a mandatory vaccine order.
Instead of releasing asylum sekers, the Department of Homeland Security will have the authority to detain them indefinitely. The effect is expected to discourage new migrants because they will not be able to work and send money to their country of origin if they are imprisoned.
President Trump rejected a resolution from Congress to end US military support for the Saudi-led war in Yemen. Congress has the legal ability to compel the removal of US military forces, absent a formal declaration of war.
‘Press for Truth’ received a response from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to his letter sent in 2017 requesting permission to inspect the surveillance video from six different cameras that recorded the January, 2017, mosque shooting in French Quebec.
After President Trump threatened to bus hordes of inbound migrants into sanctuary cities and the sanctuary state of California, Cher, the actress and singer who once advocated welcoming migrants into their homes, has changed her mind.
Stefan Molyneux questions the official story that the fire was accidental and presents reasons for suspecting it is part of the series of recent attacks against Catholic churches that have been blamed on ISIS. There were a dozen incidents of arson or serious vandalism against churches in just one week last month.

Offline is a documentary on the inevitability of the Earth being slammed by a mega solar flare – not the common type that interrupts communications and creates a light show in the Northern skies – but the big brothers thousands of times more powerful. These monsters deliver enough energy to blow apart the master transformers that supply the planet’s energy grids. When that happens, the lights go out for longer than anyone wants to think about. These X-Class solar storms hit the Earth every 150 years, on average. The last one arrived 156 years ago. We are overdue (More)
